Biocultural Conservation Planning
The CBC works together with a range of partners to support, develop, and implement culturally-grounded approaches to management and conservation of people, lands, and waters.
Biocultural approaches explicitly start with and build upon local values, knowledge, and needs while recognizing the interplay between the cultural and biological parts of a system.
