Course CodeCLM8124
Course TitleCollaborative Conservation: Partnerships in Practice
DescriptionThis advanced-level course builds on the foundational skills taught in the Partnership and Community Collaboration Academy: Managing by Network course. This course is designed for those actively involved in community-based partnerships who want to develop their skills more fully and move their partnerships forward. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with partners who are currently involved in successful community-based conservation partnership initiatives. Through case studies and discussions, conservation leaders will share lessons learned as well as the strategies, tools, and techniques that have made their partnerships successful. Participants will cultivate their professional competencies for partnership and community collaboration by learning from others’ experiences of real-world implementation and then transferring and applying that knowledge to their partnerships. After the course, one webinar will be held where participants will report how they applied the training and the progress they made as a result.

• Demonstrate the competencies needed for developing successful collaborative partnerships.

• Employ sound techniques to leverage conservation resources effectively, including people and materials.

Target Audience:
