The Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) and the Conservation Coaches Network (CCNet) are keen to identify and share excellence in adaptive management practice across the conservation community. Organizations, projects, programs, and individuals are working on adaptive management in a range of highly effective and efficient ways and improving the practice of conservation as a result. This competition seeks to collect and share these cases studies to promote cross-organizational, cross-project, and cross-coach/practitioner learning about adaptive management in conservation.
The panel will consider the following criteria as they review each case study:
- Relevance – Clearly illustrates one or more steps in the adaptive management cycle. At a minimum, it should include an explanation of its “theory of change”
- Setting the scene – Provides a succinct description of both the case study situation and the adaptive management work that was undertaken
- Well-presented – Describes the case study in a concise, easy-to-understand fashion in both the template description and the web-sharable overview; Readily identifies lessons learned and provides evidence for those lessons
- Compelling narrative – Offers an inspirational story
In addition, judges may give special consideration to getting a diversity of examples and to cases that share failures and/or thoughts on broader lessons for others doing similar work.
Deadline for Submission: 30 March 2018
