The purpose of this MOA is to encourage strong national, Tribal, regional, State, and local level partnerships, as well as to strengthen cooperation among the Parties which results in coordinated interagency delivery of conservation assistance to private landowners, communities, and others to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation’s natural resources.
The National Conservation Planning Partnership (NCPP) represents the efforts of five key national conservation partners to reinvigorate conservation planning by enhancing and strengthening the effectiveness of planning and our partnership workforce.
