Partnership for Action on Conservation Technology

12 June 2019

A summary of the workshop is available here.

The Partnership for Action in Conservation Technology (PACT) is a day-long workshop for leaders in conservation and technology to explore advances in conservation tech and discuss areas for growth and collaboration in the future. The eNGO community has an opportunity and need to convene leaders from our sector to develop a clear understanding of the current and future landscape of conservation technology. Further, representatives of technology organizations and companies should be present to learn about the advances we have made, the capacity challenges we face as conservationists, and the opportunities for collaboration. In brief, the goals of this meeting are to map the state of technologies for conservation, including current progress, emerging ideas, and outstanding needs.
