Climate-smart people-centred conservation: a synthesis report
WWF-UK promotes the practice of “climate smart pro-poor conservation” (CSPPC) within the programmes that it supports through its Programme Partnership Agreement (PPA) with DFID. The overall objective of the PPA is to improve the wellbeing of women and men living in poverty as a result of policy- and practice-induced improvements to ecosystem services and to tackling climate change. Over the last 4 years the PPA has supported CSPPC to varying degrees across a portfolio of eight different programmes in Kenya, Tanzania, Brazil, Colombia and Nepal.
In 2015, with the PPA drawing to a close in 2016, WWF-UK commissioned the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) to design and implement a CSPPC learning initiative in order to explore how CSPPC has been interpreted and practiced across the different WWF programmes in the PPA portfolio; what has worked and what has not; and what the opportunities and constraints are to further rolling out CSPPC approaches across WWF.
