The long-term success of private and civic land conservation efforts depends in large part on the public trust inspired by strong and stable land conservation organizations. Protecting land is a resource-intensive effort that represents an enduring commitment by a conservation organization to local communities, land owners and users, government agencies, private investors, and philanthropic organizations. We share strategies and experiences from land conservation nonprofits, nongovernmental organizations, and networks across the globe who are working on developing and implementing voluntary standards of operations and governance, training and developing staff and expertise, engaging with local communities and stakeholder groups, and taking other initiatives to strengthen their capacity, relevance, and durability.
