Training Toolkit: Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI)

The goal of the Community Conservation Resilience Initiative (CCRI) is to strengthen the resilience of community conservation practices. The CCRI methodology has been developed for national organizations that are undertaking a national initiative in their countries. It is a simple guiding framework that can be adapted to the reality of a country/ community in order to develop advocacy tools. This training toolkit is based on the presentations of different CCRI partner groups, staff and technical advisors at a global training workshop which was organised in November 2014 in Asunción, Paraguay.
