The Holy Grail of biodiversity conservation management: Monitoring impact in projects and project portfolios
P.J. Stephenson
10.1016/j.pecon.2019.11.003

  • Existing project management guidelines inadequately address the issue of planning projects in a project portfolio and how to aggregate data, so many conservation projects are badly monitored.

  • To enhance programme delivery and monitoring, I define Five Steps to Conservation Impact around: Planning; Common; Indicators; Monitoring; Interpretation; Action.

  • These steps differ from other project management guidelines by linking common goals with common indicators and measuring aggregated conservation impact.

  • Enabling conditions to ensure success include: senior managers are willing to establish a results-based management culture; attribution is considered an aspiration not a hindrance; capacity and tools are in place.

  • Making impact monitoring the norm will require a culture change within the conservation community.

  • Land sharing/sparing approaches offer interdependent and complementary opportunities for Forest and Landscape Restoration.

  • Landscape configuration and governance issues drive the focus, forest types, and location of the restorative interventions.

  • Sharing/sparing opportunities should consider the social context and a multi-stakeholder process.
