IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) helps the world find pragmatic solutions to our most pressing environment and development challenges. It supports scientific research, manages field projects all over the world and brings governments, non-government organizations, United Nations agencies, companies and local communities together to develop and implement policy, laws and best practice.
Invasive Action Tool (People & Pests Research Team, Invasive Animals CRC) includes 3 community engagement modules (Planning; Implementation; Evaluation) and 2 behaviourally effective communications modules. It is free to join and includes a ‘team’ function that allows you to work individually while also sharing your progress with your team members. The modules are designed to be self-directed and practical – you can complete various tasks and produce a tailored Engagement Plan to help guide your project work. Each topic includes links to additional readings for those who want to take a deeper dive on the theory behind the practice.
