Conservation enterprises approaches are defined by a development hypothesis (theory of change) that if income is increased through conservation enterprises, then participants will discontinue environmentally unsustainable activities, leading to reductions to threats to the environment. Over the past two decades, conservation enterprise approaches have been used extensively in USAID biodiversity programming. Yet, little information has been collected in a systematic way to test key assumptions regarding the effectiveness of these approaches. Join this webinar to learn from M&E experts at USAID on how development projects can achieve conservation goals if certain elements and indicators are included during project design and measure through the project's cycle. Lessons from successful projects in Nepal, Guatemala and Uganda will be shared to show real examples of how projects have reached net zero deforestation and a reduction in poaching in project sites.
