Conservation by Design is The Nature Conservancy’s (TNC) strategic framework for conservation success and marries its collaborative, science-based approach with key analytical methods. This Guidance document aims to help teams develop bold strategies to address the major conservation challenges of our day, moving from strategies and projects that treat symptoms at a local scale to strategies and projects that address underlying systemic causes at a much broader regional and global scale. This Guidance document outlines the approach used by TNC to develop, evaluate and strengthen strategies in support of the advances described in Conservation by Design 2.0. It is intended to describe leading practices for conservation which can readily be adapted and adopted by TNC and other organizations.
