File Adaptive Management A Tool for Conservation Practitioners by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 12:05 PM
By Nick Salafsky and Richard Margoluis, 2001, Biodiversity Support Program Adaptive management is growing in popularity as a concept in conservation circles. The purpose of the Biodiversity Support Program's research was to determine how to make adaptive management a practical tool for conservation practitioners around the world. Literature review combined with field testing revealed that adaptive management must be done by project managers themselves and requires establishing a clear purpose, developing an explicit model of the project site, selecting actions that maximize results and learning, developing and implementing a monitoring plan to test assumptions, analyzing data, communicating results, and then using these results to adapt and learn. {5-5-a}
File Classification of Collaborative Management Methods by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 10, 2013 12:05 PM
By Dana Blumenthal and Jean-Luc Jannink, 2000, Conservation Ecology 4(2):13 The authors suggest the use of a consistent framework for comparing collaborative management methods, and develop such a framework based on five criteria: participation, institutional analysis, simplification of the natural resource, spatial scale, and stages in the process of natural resource management. They apply this framework to six of the more commonly cited methods: soft systems analysis, adaptive management, ecosystem management, agroecosystem analysis, rapid rural appraisal and participatory rural appraisal.

File Medidas de Éxito: Diseño, manejo y monitoreo de proyectos de conservación y desarrollo by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 10, 2013 12:05 PM
Audiencia para esta guía Medidas de Éxitoes una guía para el diseño, manejo y monitoreo de los impactos producidos por proyectos de conservación y desarrollo. Algunas personas creen que éstas son tareas difíciles que sólo aquéllos con entrenamiento académico avanzado y títulos universitarios pueden llevar a cabo. Sin embargo, nosotros creemos que las personas que están más calificadas para realizar este trabajo son las personas que practican la conservación y las partes interesadas dentro de las comunidades, quienes se encuentran más familiarizados con las condiciones locales. Esta guía fue escrita para ellos. Si usted forma parte de un esfuerzo de conservación y desarrollo, entonces el enfoque sistemático que se presenta en esta guía puede ayudarlo en el diseño de un nuevo proyecto o en el perfeccionamiento de un proyecto existente. Si usted es parte de un grupo que apoya al personal de campo en el diseño, implementación o evaluación de un proyecto, entonces esta guía le proporcionará algunas herramientas básicas para ayudarlo en su trabajo. Entre las personas que podrían utilizar esta guía se encuentran funcionarios de gobierno, personas que toman decisiones y crean políticas a seguir, donantes, investigadores y estudiantes. Finalmente, aunque esta guía fue escrita para proyectos de conser- vación y desarrollo, su enfoque puede ser fácilmente adaptado para ser usado en proyectos de otros campos relacionados, tales como el desarrollo comunitario, la salud pública y la educación.
