Why are collaborative projects like Altyn Dala so important?
“CCI was founded with the vision to foster and catalyse innovative collaboration between conservation organisations, on the premise that proximity, investment and knowledge-exchange will enhance efforts to restore global biodiversity and build essential capacity.
The Altyn Dala project, being recognized by the UN today, is testament to the value of CCI, benefiting from extensive and ongoing collaboration between BirdLife International, FFI, IUCN’s Red List Unit, the RSPB, TRAFFIC and the Masters in Conservation Leadership. Everyone involved is playing to their strengths and adding enormous value to this ambitious initiative. As part of a growing list of collaborative projects, doesn’t Altyn Dala just go to show that CCI’s vision is absolutely right?”
– Mark Day, Head of the Kazakhstan Steppe Conservation Programme at the RSPB
