Biodiversity Cross-Mission Learning Program
USAID's Office of Forestry and Biodiversity is introducing the Biodiversity Cross-Mission Learning Program to capture and share lessons for common conservation strategic approaches across Missions.
Collaborative Learning Groups are forming around questions and topics focused on specific theories of change in order to develop and pursue shared learning agendas. The Learning Groups will collaborate through dedicated sites that will feature facilitated email discussions, virtual meetings, and a wiki knowledge base.
Learning Groups may also choose to collaborate on data or information collection to address priority learning questions. All of this work will culminate in a learning agenda analysis to provide concrete answers to the questions.
The Conservation Enterprises Learning Group is focused on the hypothesis that if participant income is increased through participation in conservation enterprises, then they will discontinue environmentally unsustainable activities. These strategic approaches are sometimes called sustainable or alternative livelihoods.
Combating Wildlife Trafficking
The CWT Learning Group is focused on building a knowledge base around how best to build capacity, reduce consumer demand, and improve community engagement to combat wildlife crime.
Please join our groups! Any interested USAID staff are welcome. For questions or information about joining, please Contact the Measuring Impact team.
