Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) Preliminary Report
The aim of the Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) is to contribute to the implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s 2011-2020 Strategic Plan and Aichi Targets, by providing policy advice on effective and appropriate forms of support for community conservation.
The project is documenting and reviewing the findings of bottom up, participatory assessments of up to 60 communities in at least 20 different countries, assessing the resilience of community conservation initiatives and the support that should be provided to strengthen these initiatives. The results of the assessments will be widely disseminated and fed into the deliberations of the Convention on Biological Diversity and related international policy processes through an active outreach and advocacy campaign. The project will run until April 2019. A CCRI methodology has been developed, which is a simple guiding framework that can be adapted to the reality of a community.
A number of CCRI projects are already under way, including with communities in Chile, Colombia, Ethiopia, Iran, Malaysia, Panama, Paraguay, Russia, Samoa, Solomon Islands, South Africa and Uganda. The case studies are inspiring, and the pilot projects have already taught us a great deal about the best ways to design, develop and implement CCRI projects.
