Members of a cross-institutional working group have drafted a “beta” 2.0 version of the threats and actions classification system. Check them out here and provide comments and feedback through August 31, 2015!
Published in 2008 in Conservation Biology, the IUCN-CMP Threat and Action Classifications have been used to classify tens of thousands of species, projects, and sites. These classifications have provided a much-needed framework to classify conservation threats and actions using a common language – thus, setting the foundation for sharing experiences and learning from one another.
After six years of use across the conservation community, we have learned the strengths and gaps of the existing system and are now in a position to practice what we preach – adapt and improve based on what we learned. The beta versions, which incorporate experiences from several organizations and hundreds of projects, are available for public comment through August 31, 2015. Before commenting, please read instructions for commenting.
Thank you for your input!
