Developing Global Capacity

NCEP’s ultimate goal is to engage key actors in long-term, strategic thinking about local and regional capacity needs for effective conservation practice. To date, our work around the world has built lasting initiatives now led by local partners, established training programs hosted by local institutions, and generated a group of leaders who are thinking strategically about system-wide change. We are interested in meeting new partners with an interest in training and/or collaborating to adapt NCEP resources to local and regional contexts.

Here we highlight our current and past initiatives around the globe:
