CMP-CCNet Case Study Competition – Deadline Extended to 15 Sept!

The Conservation Coaches Network (CCNet) and The Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) are jointly launching a competition for Adaptive Management Case Studies:

  • Are you managing a conservation project?
  • Are you willing to share your lessons learned with your peers around the world?
  • Do you want to win fabulous prizes?
  • Are you looking for everlasting fame and glory?

If you answered yes to these questions, then you should enter the CMP – CCNet Global Adaptive Management Case Study Competition.

What: We are looking to gather and share good examples of adaptive management practice across the conservation community. To this end, we are asking folks around the world to send us their case studies.

Fabulous Prizes: As incentives, the top-rated entry will receive a travel grant of US $2000 and two runners up will receive travel grants of US $500 each. All reasonable entries will be posted on our web-sites and the top 10 rated entries will be featured on in CMP & CCNet materials (hence the everlasting fame and glory) and will also receive a 1-year Miradi Software subscription.

How to Enter: Submit a 2-3 page description of your case study and a link to a succinct web-page, video, Google document, PDF file, or other web-shareable overview describing the case study to conservation practitioners. Click here for detailed instructions and the template form. To be eligible for prizes, entries must be received by 15 September 2016.

Please share this announcement widely with friends and colleagues.

Human Wellbeing Guidance Version 2.0 Available!

Members of CMP’s Human Wellbeing Working Group are pleased to share an update version of CMP’s human wellbeing guidance! This update is based on 3.5 years of applying the concepts from Version 1.0 across dozens of projects spanning a wide range of countries and cultures. It draws on feedback from those in the OS community who have used the guidance, as well as those who have used variations of these concepts over the past two decades. Some updates include more details on how to address cultural elements (including an appendix with variations on the standard guidance) and examples of how displaying human wellbeing components may resonate with different audiences.¬†Click here to see Version 2.0.
