Conservation Action Planning: For almost 20 years, Conservation Action Planning (CAP) has been an international standard for planning and monitoring projects. CAP is a relatively simple, straightforward and proven approach for planning, carrying out and measuring the success of conservation projects. The strength of the process is in bringing people together who have an interest in caring for their local environment and sharing knowledge. This information is used to
develop a community plan to increase the health of the local landscape.
Workshop 1 (13th March)
Deciding what the plan is about – the first step in creating a CAP is clarifying the purpose of the plan and what it will focus on, including the vision, scope. We will establish the key things
participants care about (assets), problems in the local landscape and their causes (threats) and what is causing the problems (situation analysis).
Workshop 2 (17th April)
Making the plan – this step takes teams through developing goals and strategies to increase the health of the landscape, andways to measure if we are getting anywhere. This includes
developing monitoring plans and running through checks to test if strategies will achieve their objectives (results chains).
Free, catering included. Please RSVP here by March 9.
