Conservation by Design is currently under construction. Please check back next year.

Reconsider and map both positive co-benefits and negative impacts on people.

You may have gained a bet­ter under­stand­ing at this stage of who will be affect­ed by a giv­en strat­e­gy and how they will be impact­ed. New issues that arise should be quan­ti­fied here even if they were not explic­it in the results chain ini­tial­ly; if this is the case go back and amend your results chain too to reflect new infor­ma­tion. As you explore ben­e­fits and risks, refer to the Social Safe­guards ques­tions and resources ref­er­enced ear­li­er in this doc­u­ment. Impacts to con­sid­er include:

1. Will the strat­e­gy help mit­i­gate or adapt to cli­mate change, or wors­en emis­sions or resilience in some way?

2. Are there pro­vi­sion­ing ecosys­tem ser­vices that may be affect­ed, like hunt­ing, fish­ing, ranch­ing or har­vest­ing areas that will have greater or lim­it­ed access because of the strategy?

3. Will water qual­i­ty or sup­ply be improved or lim­it­ed for key uses like drink­ing water, irri­ga­tion, indus­tri­al use, ener­gy pro­duc­tion, trans­porta­tion or recre­ation­al use?

4. Will the strat­e­gy dis­pro­por­tion­ate­ly impact or ben­e­fit vul­ner­a­ble or under-rep­re­sent­ed groups of people?

5. Will access to or con­di­tion of cul­tur­al­ly impor­tant sites be improved or harmed in any way?
