This fact sheet describes how the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group is using scenario analysis to leverage all available opportunities to incorporate conservation into potential economic land-uses.

The Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group, through its Land Use Management task area, aims to develop a methodological approach to conservation planning based on scenario analysis, and guidelines for its application, to incorporate equitable and climate-smart alternatives into land use decisions for conservation. The methodology is being applied in four countries: 1) northern Republic of Congo – WCS, WRI, JGI; 2) eastern DRC – JGI, WRI, WCS; 3) western Tanzania – AWF, WRI, JGI, CI, WCS, and; 4) Madagascar – CI, WCS by replicating a landscape-level planning process with multi-sectoral stakeholders in order to better understand drivers of landscape change.
