Fauna & Flora International (FFI)

Conservation - developed globally, managed locally

We believe that the most effective and long-term solutions to safeguard species and habitats lie in local hands. Capacity development for us is about helping people build expertise and access the resources they need to own and deliver conservation. This concept lays at the heart of FFI's work.

Situation

People are both the driving force behind conservation loss and the reason for protecting it. With biodiversity being lost at 1,000 times the natural rate and increasing pressures related to population growth, such as habitat conversion to agriculture, hunting, human-wildlife conflict and climate change, the need for conservation has never been greater. As populations worldwide grow, so do the pressures on natural resources; conservation can provide innovative solutions for easing these pressures

Solution

Our method is to work in mutually beneficial partnerships with a common purpose, where each partner brings something to the table. We provide long-term, bespoke support to those who ask for our help to build their technical, institutional and leadership capacity. To address conservation challenges, FFI works with people ranging from government organisations to local community co-operatives and individuals. We help them access resources, knowledge and skills to conserve biodiversity effectively.
