Conservation Management joins the Conservation Measures Partnership

The Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) is a “partnership of conservation-oriented NGOs, government agencies, funders, and private businesses that work collectively to achieve greater impact. We seek better ways to design, manage, and measure the impacts of our conservation actions so that we can learn and improve our efforts and contribute our learning to the broader evidence base.” (

Using the Conservation Standards can help guide solutions and actions to combat the significant challenges we face such as climate change, food insecurity and impending extinction crisis. CMP was established to bring together like-minded organisations to harness the collective knowledge and resources of partners.

Conservation Management joins the partnership alongside organisations like Foundations of Success, funders including the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, NGOs like Bush Heritage and The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and government agencies such as the US Agency for International Development (USAID). Conservation Management brings expertise in Healthy Country Planning across large and diverse landscapes with First Nations across Australia, South East Asia and Canada to the partnership.

CMP is supporting projects including a more holistic approach to conservation by supporting human wellbeing and by improving reporting through the software, Miradi. Another project is about incorporating Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) principles into the Conservation Standards and Conservation Management is supporting this through sharing the Free Prior and Consent (FPIC) process we have developed so that First Nations Peoples can make informed decisions about, and benefit from, proposed projects on their traditional lands.
