Phase 1: Identify Challenges & Goals

  1. Spec­i­fy Plan­ning Con­text. Define the scope to ensure a focus on sig­nif­i­cant con­ser­va­tion prob­lems and the rel­e­vant geo­gra­phies where those chal­lenges will be addressed.
  2. Con­duct Sit­u­a­tion Analy­sis. In close col­lab­o­ra­tion with key stake­hold­ers, ana­lyze evi­dence to describe cur­rent and pre­dict­ed future sit­u­a­tions to iden­ti­fy con­ser­va­tion tar­gets, direct­ly relat­ed human inter­ests, threats, dri­vers, risks, and oppor­tu­ni­ties for cre­at­ing change.
  3. Draft Goal State­ment. Spec­i­fy the min­i­mum change need­ed to con­tribute to desired sys­temic change, both for nature and direct­ly con­nect­ed out­comes for human well-being.
  4. Share Advances in Knowl­edge Through Rel­e­vant Path­ways. Iden­ti­fy the key lessons you have learned in the process of iden­ti­fy­ing chal­lenges and goals, deter­mine who needs or will use that knowl­edge, then doc­u­ment and dis­sem­i­nate appropriately.
