Description: Conservation is inevitably a social undertaking. As such, many conservation teams feel compelled to address human wellbeing when developing their conservation projects. Prior to 2012, Open Standards users had little guidance on addressing social aspects and human wellbeing in the context of the Open Standards. This document, developed collaboratively by representatives from several organizations and updated in 2016, is a companion document to the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation.
