The Nature of Conservation Enterprises: A 20-year Retrospective Evaluation

USAID’s “The Nature of Conservation Enterprises: A 20-year retrospective evaluation of the theory of change behind this widely used approach to biodiversity conservation” uses a theory of change to examine the assumptions and draw lesson learned on the conditions needed for enterprise and conservation sustainability from six sites across the globe. This resource is a deliverable of the Measuring Impact Activity.

The accompanying photo story is a collection of images from six conservation enterprise sites in the Philippines, Guatemala, Uganda, and Nepal. These photos tell the story of the businesses that generate economic and social benefits in ways that help meet conservation outcomes.
