Advancing landscape conservation policy is an important goal for many Network partners and the field as a whole. A number of policy efforts have been spearheaded by our Policy Working Group, including:
- Hosting a Virtual Policy Forum Series on the Future of Landscape Conservation from summer 2020 into 2021, bringing together leading thinkers in the field to to foster a national dialogue on collaborative landscape conservation and the challenges and opportunities necessary for success.
- Working with partners to submit multi-organization support letters to Congress supporting funding for collaborative landscape conservation:
- Crafting a Landscape Conservation Policy Paper for the new federal administration in the winter of 2016/2017, signed by 63 separate organizations.
The Policy Working Group continues to work with partners from the state to federal levels to improve funding and policy for landscape conservation.
