These are the criteria by which we form partnerships with conservation organizations.
These criteria also define what projects we will support as a community.
1. Communities for Conservation requires complete financial transparency of the organization we are supporting in regards to how CfC support is used.
2. Communities for Conservation requires the partnered organization to be in strong standing in terms of the level of community involvement in their conservation projects. This is also known as taking a ‘bottom-up’ approach to conservation work.
3. Communities for Conservation works with organizations who exemplify respect for indigenous peoples in alignment with United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
4. Projects that Communities for Conservation supports must be substantially relevant to the goals of the Nature Needs Half movement.
5. Projects that Communities for Conservation supports must use CfC financial support for nothing other than the implementation of the project agreed upon between CfC and the project partners organization.
6. We require organizations we work with to have clear projected project outcomes that are grounded in the successes of past projects of the same/similar nature.
7. Communities for Conservation requires that organizations are active through their media in expressing that support their project was supported by Communities for Conservation.
8. We require a signed legal agreement between organizations CfC partners with and CfC indicating they will comply with the above criteria. Failure to comply results in immediate termination of support from CfC.
