Real-world examples bring to life the true value of the Open Standards for conservation planning, management, and monitoring. Here we share case studies of teams applying the Open Standards and how it has made a difference for their conservation work.  We also share examples of organizations that have adopted or internalized the Open Standards and how they have adapted them for their own use. Projects (not reviewed) from around the world are featured in an interactive map.

Case Studies are vetted by a Review Committee composed of CMP and CCNet representatives. As examples span more than a decade, there is currently have a backlog of materials for formal vetting. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
