Course on Adaptive Management for Conservation Success

link ANNOUNCEMENT

Adaptive Management for Conservation Success

Application deadline: April 22, 2011

The Smithsonian-Mason Global Conservation Studies Program has teamed up with FoS to hold an intensive, highly practical, 10-day course in adaptive management based on the Conservation Measures Partnership’s Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation.

You will gain new skills for designing, planning, and implementing effective projects and for providing clear evidence of progress towards conservation results. With the help of expert coaches, your “team” uses a real conservation project (if you have one you would like to offer, please contact us) to practice conceptualizing your project, formulating objectives, and demonstrating measurable affects.

You will also learn how to use Miradi adaptive management software, which has been adopted by major conservation organizations (e.g., TNC, WWF, WCS) and is currently being used by more than 1,000 nature conservation practitioners in more than 147 countries.

When? June 6-17, 2011

Where? Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, USA
