Conservation in Illinois: Hotspot Analysis
September 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join us for a discussion on conservation hotspots in Illinois and why they matter to program design
Date and Time: Tuesday, September 28, 2021 from 10am-11am CDT
Join Delta Institute for a webinar to discuss recently released analysis and recommendations developed in collaboration with Environmental Working Group. These findings are detailed in the report, titled Conservation in Illinois: Hotspot Analysis and Implications for Program Design.
To assess conservation adoption in Illinois and identify key factors that lead to higher adoption rates, Delta Institute and Environmental Working Group partnered to identify conservation hotspots. We utilized publicly available data to identify where conservation practices are being adopted. Where we had datasets that covered extended time ranges, we also assessed the longevity of conservation behavior. Additionally, an interactive map was created to facilitate further exploration of the data. The results of the analysis suggest that future strategies which seek to more effectively deploy financial and technical support to increase conservation adoption should be modified to focus on local conditions and concerns, avoiding a state-wide or uniform program design that fails to consider local factors.
See you there!
