Abstract:

Effective conservation requires actions at the site and landscape scales. Achieving broad scale conservation often necessitates partnering with the private sector to safeguard biodiversity targets, and major conservation organizations have begun to partner with industry to achieve such outcomes. These partnerships often focus on developing and implementing standards of good practice and/or engaging industry in landscape-level planning, but often face challenges in demonstrating effective contributions to conservation.

A review of partnerships between conservation organizations and the private sector in the agriculture, mining, oil and gas, and tourism sectors was conducted to identify approaches meeting certain design criteria. Twelve partnerships were reviewed representing a range of environmental NGOs across the 4 industry sectors. Each partnership was assigned an approach category (standards; land-use planning; both) to identify the most common approach by industry. The partnerships were then assessed based on design criteria (e.g. conservation targets and threats identified, project baseline established; monitoring program implemented) to identify approaches meeting the highest number of criteria. Results showed partnerships focusing on land-use planning met the highest number of criteria and were most often implemented by the mining and oil and gas sectors. Implications for leveraging assessment and monitoring work by conservation biologists are discussed.
