Annual Reports

CLP annual reports outline the various capacity building components of the programme and the achievements accomplished by CLP alumni.

In recent years CLP has produced reports to demonstrate the impact which the programme has been having in delivering support and mentoring to CLP alumni, which is in turn making a valuable contribution to the conservation of threatened species and habitats. Detailed reports from individual projects funded by CLP can be viewed by searching under Supported Projects.

CLP Alumni Assessment 1990-2005

In 2005 CLP made an assessment of its impact on conservation and capacity development of young conservationists over 15 years. The assessment looked at the career paths of CLP award winners, the proportion of team members still working in a conservation-related field, and considered awardees significant conservation achievements. Results showed that the majority of team members have remained working in conservation and that approximately half of those individuals have continued to work in the region or with the species or habitat their project studied. Sustainable conservation activities and achievements have been widely accomplished proving that CLP activities lead to long term capacity development and conservation benefit.
