Miradi is an open source tool that supports the adaptive management cycle – from conceptualization, to planning, implementation, analysis, and learning – in conservation projects. It enables conservation teams to follow best practices like the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation in the design and long-term management of projects. Miradi helps teams conceptualize and organize the planning process by developing conceptual models and result chains with threat levels, targets, and indicators. It then generates strategic plans, work plans, and project reports to facilitate project implementation, analysis, and learning in accordance with standards. A step-by-step wizard guides users through the adaptive management process.
