Practitioners Guides, Toolkits, and Training Manuals for Integrated Conservation and Development Projects

An Annotated Bibliography of Linked Resources

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a shared blueprint for prosperity for people and the planet into the future. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize that ending poverty and food insecurity requires strategies that reduce inequality, spur economic growth, preserve oceans and forests, and tackle climate change. While today there is global consensus about the linked nature of these challenges, that wasn’t always the case.

In 2008, the CARE-WWF Alliance launched a unique global partnership to advance these linked objectives. After a decade of partnership, the Alliance is taking stock of approaches, lessons, and best practices for advancing poverty alleviation, sustainable livelihoods and natural resource management in the context of climate change.

This document seeks to summarize the best approaches for designing, implementing, and monitoring contemporary Integrated Conservation and Development Projects (ICDPs).
