Welcome to Conservation Gateway

The Gateway is for the conservation practitioner, scientist and decision-maker. Here we share the best and most up-to-date information we use to inform our work at The Nature Conservancy.

Chapter 4: Share Products and Data

Higgins, Jonathan; Esselman, Rebecca

Standard 4: Make all products, methods and supporting data publicly available, in accordance with data sharing agreements.

Information and data must be made available to others to make significant progress towards global biodiversity conservation. This progress will be made by using ecoregional assessments to engage others in fundraising, informing policy and supporting direct, on-the-ground conservation actions through partners.
