This manual describes an adaptation of the conventional Conservation Action Planning method (formerly known as Site Conservation Planning (SCP)), which draws on the strengths of CAP in eliciting qualitative information through a structured process, but adapts the methodology for use in rural (and other) communities.  It was developed by the Lore Lindu Conservation Planning Team.  The methodology was field tested in Lore Lindu National Park, Komodo Marine National Park, and in Berau District, East Kalimantan. Then, the process was reviewed by a peer review team.
