National and local conservation organisations in biodiversity-rich developing countries require institutional capacity in conservation leadership and systemic organisation. This includes areas such as strategic planning, governance, fundraising, monitoring and evaluation and financial management.
To provide the affordable self–sustained institutional capacity development needed, this collaborative project will:
- Assess organisational capacity gaps in a trial group of conservation NGOs
- Harness and adapt the best of available training guides and tools
- Enable a process for practical self-guided application of these materials
- Enhance learning and leadership within the sector
Shared international support platform and tools will be created for the first time, and methods for measuring progress developed, specifically for institutional capacity development for conservation NGOs. The methods and tools developed by this project will initially be sent to over 150 collaborating partner organisations, before being made available universally.
This project was funded by the CCI Collaborative Fund.
