The mission of the Practice Program is to build capacity for collaborative conservation in current and future practitioners. Increased collaboration builds stronger communities and creates enduring conservation actions.
Conservation practitioners today need to be highly competent technically and also engage effectively with diverse people to solve complex conservation challenges.
Collaborative capacity refers to skills and tools that enable conservation practitioners to be better prepared for successfully addressing the complexity of emerging conservation issues. The CCC works directly with practitioners to design and implement this program.
