Second Global Adaptive Management Case Study Competition

Help others learn from your conservation work and improve their conservation efforts! And earn a travel award while you are at it! This competition seeks to collect and share cases studies to promote cross-organizational, cross-project, and cross-coach/practitioner learning about adaptive management in conservation.

Follow the instructions here to submit your case study. Our judging panel, made up of representatives from CMP and CCNet, will consider the following criteria:


Clearly illustrates one or more steps in the adaptive management cycle. At a minimum, it should include an explanation of its “theory of change”

Setting the scene

Provides a succinct description of both the case study situation and the adaptive management work that was undertaken


Describes the case study in a concise, easy-to-understand fashion in both the template description and the web-sharable overview; Readily identifies lessons learned and provides evidence for those lessons

Compelling lessons learned

Offers an inspirational story

In addition, judges may give special consideration to getting a diversity of examples and to cases that share failures and/or thoughts on broader lessons for others doing similar work.

Deadline for Submission: 30 March 2018

Winners will be announced at CCNet’s Coaches Rally (April 30 – May 2, 2018).
