Bruce Byers has extensive experience leading and facilitating participatory information-gathering and analytical processes that help clients summarize success stories and “lessons learned,” and identify best practices in a given aspect of conservation and natural resources management.
He has led such participatory applied research for USAID regarding behaviors in conservation, their global forestry program, biodiversity conservation, and tropical forestry and biodiversity analyses, and for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on education, communication, and outreach strategies.
This work often results in guides or manuals that provide general guidelines about how to apply best practices in a particular area of work. For example:
• Behaviors in Conservation Guide 2000
• USFWS Education, Communication, and Outreach Success Stories Report, 2003
• Biodiversity Conservation – A Guide for USAID Staff and Partners 2005
• USAID Tropical Forestry and Biodiversity (FAA 118-119) Analyses Report, 2005
