How can science strengthen evidence-informed policy and practice in conservation affecting human well-being?

Governments and organizations increasingly pursue conservation policies to achieve positive outcomes for both human well-being and natural ecosystems. To achieve this, it is critical that practitioners understand linkages between nature and people: which interventions have been effective at meeting social and environmental objectives? What evidence is available to support decisions? Unfortunately, evidence of these linkages is often either unclear or inadequate.

OUR APPROACH: This team brought together expertise from data synthesis, machine learning, computer science, international development, and social science to assess the current state of evidence and to enhance our understanding of how conservation affects human well-being.

Mapping the Evidence

Following their nature publication “Map the evidence,” the team developed the Atmosphere Women Joan Rain Wedge Navy Sorel Winter Collegiate Boot q8A4W6wX. This portal features data and an evidence map, which highlights the number of unique articles documenting the impact of a specific conservation intervention on a particular human well-being outcome. The portal allows users to filter, explore, and visualize data to identify relevant information for decision-making.



Together with Conservation International and DataKind, the team created Colandr, an open-access machine learning application that allows for faster filtering of scientific data. Before the development of Colandr, it could take months, even years, to sift through piles of studies to track down the evidence needed to make the right decision. Now conservation practitioners and policymakers can quickly mine research for key insights and make more timely science-based decisions.



“Conservation strategies have a greater impact when they are informed by the latest scientific evidence, so we need to make this evidence easily accessible to decision-makers at all levels.”

– Yuta Masuda, Team Member
