NCDEA partners with others to strengthen conservation delivery and get more done!

“There is no better approach to solving challenges than the famous saying ‘two heads are better than one’.”1

“A partnership is two or more entities working together in a structured way to achieve a desired outcome.”2

“Through partnerships we can contribute our part and also reap the benefits of others’ efforts. We can accelerate learning and distribute skills and knowledge. Also, we can add depth and breadth to our community impact.”3

Just as conservation districts partner with others to achieve positive outcomes, so too does the National Conservation District Employees Association.

A primary example is the National Conservation Planning Partnership. Five partner organizations work together in the NCPP:

These five partners have found that their core values and long-term shared purposes are well aligned for conservation planning and the delivery of conservation services. Each organization brings complementary strengths to the partnership.

Why partner?

Partnering improves outcomes! Collaboration, strategic alliances, and similar activities can create advantages for the organizations who join forces to solve specific issues. Partnerships leverage capacity and energy to achieve more than one partner alone could achieve.
