Generating knowledge to improve conservation efforts

The Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) is a joint venture of conservation organizations and collaborators that are committed to improving the practice of conservation. By participating in CMP, member organizations seek to capitalize on their individual and collective experience to avoid duplication of effort, bypass tried but failed approaches, and quickly identify and adopt best practices. CMP strives to serve as a dynamic and active catalyst for promoting innovation in monitoring and evaluation in conservation.

Our Mission

Advance the practice of conservation by developing, testing, and promoting principles and tools to credibly assess and improve the effectiveness of conservation actions.

Each organization within CMP has biodiversity conservation as its primary goal, has a focus on field-based conservation actions, and is working to develop better approaches to project design, management, and assessment. CMP members have come together to work on issues related to impact assessment and accountability because we believe that, collectively, we have a greater chance of making significant progress on designing and implementing effective monitoring and evaluation systems.
