Step 10. Analyze, adapt, learn & share: Basic Practice Ten


This document is a chapter from the Conservation Action Planning Handbook. Step 10: Analyze, adapt, learn & share. This step helps teams remember that they need to systematically take the time to evaluate the actions that have been implemented, to update and refine knowledge and incorporate monitoring data. This reflection will provide insight on how your actions are working, what may need to change, and what to emphasize next. This step also asks teams to document and share what has been learned, so that other people can benefit from your successes and failures. Specific questions that this step answers include: What are our monitoring data telling us about our project?; What should we be doing differently?; How will we capture what we have learned?; How can we make sure other people benefit from what we have learned?
