Standard 1: Assemble Team

Higgins, Jonathan; Esselman, Rebecca

Standard 1: Assemble an ecoregion team with strong and ambitious leadership and broad expertise in ecology, conservation
biology, data analysis and management and socioeconomic capacity.

Lasting conservation of biodiversity across the ecoregion requires an interdisciplinary approach that ensures both biological rigor and creative solutions that are reflective of overarching socioeconomic and political realities. These capacities may stem from either the lead organization responsible for development of the plan, from partner organizations and from influential individuals.
