This training course will introduce concepts for collaborative strategic restoration planning. Participants will be introduced to the five-step adaptive management framework that has become the international standard in conservation and restoration planning: The Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation. Restoration practitioners have only recently begun using rigorous approaches to their work. In contrast, other industries, from accounting to medicine to manufacturing, have developed streamlined processes, standard practices, and knowledge banks that allow those industries to work efficiently, leverage prior knowledge, interact with each other, and prove the value of their products and services to clients and investors. The OS is flexible and applicable by an individual on a small site or at a regional scale while collaborating with multiple jurisdictions. The OS promotes accountability and transparency. As an added bonus, a user-friendly software package (Miradi) helps practitioners adhere to the standards, prioritize actions, and monitor intervention results and restoration outcomes. The OS integrates with, and is recommended by, the International Principles and Standards for the Practice of Ecological Restoration because the OS helps teams design and implement restoration initiatives, test their assumptions, learn from their actions, and adapt for success.
