Strategic Plan

The purpose of the Strategic Plan is to provide an overall vision for our agency and quantified objectives to measure the effectiveness of our work. The Strategic Plan articulates our view of the future of the California coast and its watersheds over the next five years—including the opportunities to improve resilience to climate change and to promote environmental equity and justice.

 

2023-2027 Strategic Plan Development Process

The Coastal Conservancy has been guided by a five year Strategic Plan for the past twenty years. The current plan was adopted in November 2017 and set goals and objectives for 2018- 2022. It is now time for the Conservancy to begin a process to develop a new Strategic Plan for the five year period of 2023-2027.

The Strategic Plan update creates an opportunity for the Conservancy to hear from our partners – nonprofit organizations, tribes, local governments, community groups, state and federal agencies, private landowners, conservation organizations, other conservation funders, and the public – about their vision and priorities for our work.

Kick Off Webinar

The Conservancy hosted a webinar on March 28, 2022 to kick off the strategic planning process.  The webinar discussed the process of developing the plan for 2023-2027, the Conservancy’s role, and the resources that may be available to us in the next five years.

The recording of the webinar can be found here.

Plan estratégico

El propósito del Plan Estratégico es brindar una visión general de nuestra agencia y objetivos cuantificados para medir la efectividad de nuestro trabajo. El Plan Estratégico articula nuestra visión del futuro de la costa de California y sus cuencas fluviales durante los próximos cinco años, incluiyendo las oportunidades para mejorar la resiliencia al cambio climático y promover la equidad y la justicia ambiental.

 

Proceso de Desarrollo del Plan Estratégico 2023-2027

La Conservación Costera se ha guiado por un Plan Estratégico de cinco años durante los últimos veinte años. El plan actual se adoptó en noviembre de 2017 y estableció metas y objetivos para 2018-2022. Ahora es el momento de que la Conservación comience un proceso para desarrollar un nuevo Plan Estratégico para el período de cinco años de 2023-2027.

 

La actualización del Plan Estratégico crea una oportunidad para escuchar a nuestros socios (por ejemplo, organizaciones sin fines de lucro, tribus, gobiernos locales, grupos comunitarios, agencias estatales y federales, terratenientes privados, organizaciones de conservación, otros financiadores de la conservación y el público) sobre su visión y prioridades para nuestro trabajo.

 

Reunion de lanzamiento

La Conservación Costera organizó una reunion virtual el 28 de marzo de 2022 para iniciar el proceso de planificación estratégica, y se discutió el proceso de desarrollo del plan para 2023-2027, el papel de la Conservación y los recursos que pueden estar disponibles en los próximos cinco años.

 

La grabación de la reunion se puede encontrar aquí.
