Social Science Working Group

The SCB Social Science Working Group (SSWG) is a global community of conservation scientists and practitioners. Established in 2003, the SSWG is dedicated to strengthening conservation social science and its application to conservation practice around the globe. SSWG is administered by a Board of Directors and Board Committees. SSWG catalyzes forums and mechanisms for information exchange, promotes dialogue and debate, shares career opportunities and builds social science capacity among conservation practitioners.

You can review the current SSWG Strategic Plan, the revised 2016 Bylaws and Annual Report.
