Community Conservation Resilience Initiative Training Toolkit
The aim of the Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) is to contribute to the implementation of the CBD’s 20112020 Strategic Plan and Aichi Targets by providing policy advice on effective and appropriate forms of support for community conservation. The project will document and review the findings of bottomup, participatory assessments in at least 20 countries (including Samoa, Solomon Islands, Russia, Iran, Uganda, South Africa, Ethiopia, Panama, Chile and Paraguay) of 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 country/community in order to develop advocacy tools.
A number of CCRI projects are already underway, and the results are inspiring. These pilot projects have taught us a great deal about the best ways to design, develop and implement CCRI projects.
This training toolkit is based on the presentations of different CCRI partner groups, staff and technical advisors at a global training workshop which was organised in November 2014 in Asunción, Paraguay. Download the CCRI training toolkit here
