The Nature of Conservation Enterprises

The nature main photoConservation enterprises are businesses designed to generate economic and social benefits that increase self-reliance and motivate communities to reduce threats to biodiversity. Over the past two decades, USAID has supported conservation enterprises of different types, at different scales, and involving different partners all over the world. 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.
