The Community Conservation Network (CCN)

The Community Conservation Network (CCN) assists local communities and their partners to sustain vital ecosystems and resources by fostering relationships and building capacity that results in improved long-term conservation, management effectiveness, and human security.

CCN envisions a world where:

  • Stakeholders are engaged in active decision-making about their own resources
  • Resource owners and users are practicing sound resource management
  • Local individuals receive training to improve their skills as environmental stewards
  • Biodiversity is conserved for the long-term in many locations
  • Local livelihoods, food security, and natural resources are sustained
  • Communities are reflective and knowledgeable about their work and its impact.
We at Diveaway have supported this through the FLMMA Network in Fiji and specifically the ICM Project.
