We face systems-level challenges in today’s world, including addressing the interwoven climate, biodiversity, and environmental justice crises. Such challenges reveal the need for conservation to be a systems-level solution, rooted in an understanding of the web of interconnections—biological and sociocultural—in which we operate. Working at the landscape scale is critical for solving these systems-level challenges. As land trusts embrace landscape scale conservation, collaboration among land trusts and with many additional stakeholders is essential to success, but there is little funding available to support collaborative processes. As one practitioner notes, “Grantors are just interested in the project…it’s like they think that the part that makes the project happen, the collaborative structure that allows us to do this work—all of that just happens on its own and doesn’t take any resources or investment.” In reality though, building and sustaining the collaboration that yields impactful conservation projects requires significant time, energy, and skill. Using the Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund as a case study, representatives of two land trusts will talk about how Catalyst Fund investments helped them build effective landscape collaboration. We will then explore the opportunity for land trusts to participate in increasing national investments in collaborative processes to bring conservation to scale as a practical response to the systems-level challenges we face. The workshop will conclude with a discussion among participants of strategies for land trusts to sustain their collaborative approaches to conservation.
