Key Challenges

Key chal­lenges are those that incor­po­rate mul­ti­ple con­ser­va­tion pri­ma­ry inter­ests, their con­nect­ed social or eco­nom­ic pri­ma­ry inter­ests and their most pow­er­ful dri­vers of change in the cur­rent sys­tem. The lan­guage used to describe key chal­lenges may or may not include ref­er­ence to spe­cif­ic pri­ma­ry inter­ests that were iden­ti­fied to start the process. Key chal­lenges are best stat­ed as the con­nect­ed set of cur­rent con­di­tions that cre­ate cur­rent chal­lenges for a major­i­ty of pri­ma­ry interests.
