In 2008, CARE and WWF launched a strategic alliance to address the root causes of poverty and environmental degradation. Through this partnership, CARE and WWF work side by side to strengthen climate-resilient communities and landscapes.
In the years since, they have developed and tested a number of innovative integrated interventions to improve human development and conservation outcomes simultaneously across a diverse portfolio of project landscapes.
EcoAgriculture Partners worked with the CARE-WWF Alliance in 2018 and 2019 to review several of these innovative projects for important lessons learned about integrated landscape management by the Alliance.
The collection of seven briefs linked here share those lessons within their specific contexts. A related synthetic typology report works to synthesize these lessons for others designing integrated conservation and development programs.
