The application of alternative modeling approaches could be expanded to help bridge the social and biological strengths of the IUCN to help promote both conservation and livelihoods. By combining the features of several participatory procedures into a customized conversational process, expert knowledge can be used to generate the relationships between variables of importance along the impact pathway and parameterize them. A workshop for testing such methods took place in Uganda.

The application of alternative modeling approaches such as Bayesian Networks (BN) could be expanded within the SULi working group to help bridge the social and biological strengths of IUCN’s SSC and CEESP. The application of such model approaches can support SULi's mission to promote both conservation and livelihoods through enhancing equitable and sustainable use of wild species and their associated ecosystems.
