Conservation Enterprises

Conservation enterprises approaches are defined by a development hypothesis (theory of change) that if income is increased through conservation enterprises, then participants will be motivated and enabled to change behaviors to reduce threats to biodiversity (e.g., by reducing unsustainable resource use or monitoring/excluding others).

Over the past two decades, conservation enterprise approaches have been used extensively in USAID biodiversity programming. Yet, little information has been collected in a systematic way to test key assumptions regarding the effectiveness of these approaches. This group can gain a deeper understanding of the effectiveness of conservation enterprises by exploring a set of shared learning questions focused on the theory of change.
