Conservation that’s Grounded in Results
Willamette Partnership helps build collaborative solutions to complex conservation problems.
Our work is focused on building resilience, both in natural ecosystems and in the communities that depend on them. Our approach is rooted in a strong sense of place and community, and it depends on contributions from a diverse coalition of partners from the worlds of conservation, business, government, agriculture, and science.
We believe that solutions to many of our seemingly intractable conservation problems are within reach. Here’s what we need to make it happen:
Clearly defined goals – What does success look like?
Tools to target efforts and track progress – How can we make the best use of limited resources, and how will we know whether we’re succeeding?
The right catalyst – How can we align social, economic, legal, and political drivers to make sure solving the problem makes sense for everyone?
Our expertise in policy, technical and science support, and stakeholder processes helps our partners address these gaps and build a clear path forward. Today we’re bringing that expertise to help tackle complex problems across the western United States.
