New Resources on Conservation Enterprises

USAID's Office of Forestry and Biodiversity is excited to announce the release of "The Nature of Conservation Enterprises: A 20-year retrospective evaluation of the theory of change behind this widely used approach to biodiversity conservation." This rare look-back at conservation enterprise approaches includes a review of six sites where an enterprise approach to conservation has been implemented for about 20 years, sometimes more. For each site, implementing partners and stakeholders were interviewed to examine the assumptions in the theory of change for conservation enterprises, as well as probe deeper into the conditions needed for long-term enterprise and conservation sustainability. USAID undertook this effort as part of its Conservation Enterprises Learning Group, a community of practice that developed the generalized theory of change as a framework for cross-site comparison and learning. Both the full report and the photo story are available with the link below.
