Enduring conservation always requires supportive policies and effective management. The leaders emphasized, however, that enduring community-based conservation can only happen if local leaders, communities, and institutions are willing and able to lead, today and into the future. Therefore, they suggested that strengthening local skills and institutions is the best investment partner organizations can make. They noted that local organizations often take on greater leadership roles—helping to strengthen others at the local, national, and regional levels—as their confidence and success grows, allowing partner organizations to redeploy resources elsewhere. The leaders shared insights on how to achieve this powerful, positive dynamic for long-term and large-scale conservation.
