There is growing recognition that sustained conservation impact requires effective leadership from local and national organisations in biodiversity-rich countries. Strengthening the institutional capacity of these organisations is crucial to ensuring they can survive and deliver effective, locally-tailored conservation action. By building collaborative support to tackle common organisational development needs, this project aims to enhance leadership and learning in organisational development in conservation organisations globally.
The project builds on the CCI-supported project Building a network of institutional NGO capacity to support sustainable conservation. It aims to link conservation organisations together through a global Capacity for Conservation network. This will facilitate peer-to-peer mentoring, collaboration and sharing of good practice for organisational development. The project also aims to build the infrastructure required to make the Capacity for Conservation website accessible to conservation organisations globally by the end of 2014. Formed in 2011, the Capacity for Conservation Collaboration is a consortium of BirdLife International, Fauna & Flora International, the Tropical Biology Association and the Department of Geography, University of Cambridge.
This project is funded by the CCI Collaborative Fund for Conservation.
