A transformative approach to environmental conservation for people and wildlife [Video]

Conventional conservation approaches have not been able to halt alarming rates of biodiversity loss. How can human–wildlife relations be transformed to protect both biodiversity and livelihoods? Is that possible without transforming the underlying economic systems?The CON-VIVA: Towards Convivial Conservation: Governing Human-Wildlife Interactions in the Anthropocene project is investigating the prospects for ‘convivial conservation’. This new model moves beyond protected areas and faith in markets to build landscape, governance and funding pathways that integrate conservation and poverty reduction, while enhancing prosperity.CON-VIVA is part of the Transformations to Sustainability programme, which funded 15 state-of-the-art international research projects between 2016 and 2022 to produce action-oriented knowledge on how social transformations to sustainability can be supported.Find out more about CON-VIVA: https://t2sresearch.org/project/conviva/Find out more about Transformations to Sustainability: https://t2sresearch.org/
