Standard 14: produce a long-term financial plan to support strategy and measures, implementation, further data development, and analyses.
Long-term conservation requires sufficient resources over the course of actions, and financial sustainability is a prerequisite for sustainable conservation. Further, for an ecoregional assessment to maintain efficacy, data must be managed over time and analyses updated as new data become available or methods advance. Consideration of how ecoregional conservation activities (maintenance of the vision/assessment, implementation of conservation action, and measuring progress) can be resourced over the long-term will improve the sustainability of the portfolio's conservation.
A long-term financing plan, to support the sponsoring organization, partners and stakeholders in maintaining and updating data, conducting analyses, implementing conservation strategies, and measuring conservation progress.
