Sharing best practices within the conservation community is one way to enable the most effective use of funding and effort.
CEPF’s “Building on Success” learning resource series provides tools for this kind of exchange by highlighting proven conservation approaches from around the globe. Six innovative learning products describe best practices from three biodiversity hotspots—Cerrado, Eastern Afromontane and Indo-Burma—but the lessons are valuable well beyond the boundaries of those regions.
Found on CEPF’s Learning Hub, the resources were created by experienced conservation practitioners to make it easier for CEPF applicants, grantees, conservationists and others to replicate successful practices. Most of the learning products are also available in more than one language.
“These resources look at how to use that successful approach to scale up conservation and help others understand how they can do it themselves in their own backyard," said Nina Marshall, CEPF’s senior director of monitoring, evaluation and outreach.
“These learning resources are a good way to help our grantees have an enduring legacy via the great ideas that they have and the successful practices that they've been able to implement and share with others,” said Marshall.
