These steps constitute the conservation process. Historically at the Conservancy, we completed comprehensive conservation plans, and more recently, conservation business plans, that described the results of every planning step in detail. Completing these plans required a significant upfront time commitment to planning before any actions were taken. However, in today’s complex world, this approach is inefficient and often counter- productive. Increasingly our planning and implementation is much more integrated and iterative. We strongly encourage that approach when using the CbD 2.0 Guidance. Accordingly, we envision that the outputs from the 14-step conservation process could be captured in several independent documents generated at different times for different purposes. Please see Table 1 for outputs from each planning step and how these may be incorporated into different products/documents. Minimum standard questions are included in each step throughout the Guidance document. Please see Appendix A for a compiled list of the minimum standard questions that should be used to assess whether the different components of CbD 2.0 have been sufficiently addressed.
