If you want to avoid some of the pitfalls associated with landscape conservation design (LCD) this webinar is for you! Learning how not to design resilient and sustainable landscapes is as important as learning how to design them. In this webinar, Rob will discuss why it’s important to institutionalize LCD, and will share the results of recent research to highlight 9 tips for what to avoid when conducting LCD (e.g., taking a “go-it-alone” approach; relying on “siloized” science; and neglecting to consider plausible futures, set priorities, or identify coordinated strategies).
