Strategic Plan

The Delta Conservancy’s 2017-2022 Strategic Plan (PDF file) outlines the goals, objectives, and strategies for the next five years. This plan acts as a roadmap for enhancing the Delta’s ecosystem and economy and builds off past successes to carry the Conservancy’s mission forward.

The Conservancy has set three strategic goals that reflect its mission and priorities:

  • Goal 1: Delta Agricultural and Economic Enhancement: Promote multi-benefit Delta working landscapes and a robust Delta tourism economy, in collaboration with local stakeholders and the Delta Protection Commission, to enhance the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta.
  • Goal 2: Delta Ecosystem Viability: Fund and implement high-priority projects that increase Delta ecosystem viability through sustaining critical habitat, restoring ecological function, improving water quality, protecting listed species, increasing ecosystem diversity, and managing for climate change; and continue to work collaboratively to define multi-benefit restoration objectives.
  • Goal 3: Conservancy Organizational Strength and Sustainability: Cultivate a durable and effective organization via strategic collaboration, effective staffing and management, and long-term financial planning.

To meet these goals, the Conservancy has set clear and measurable objectives and performance measures to ensure accountability, measure success, and inform future decision-making.

The Delta Conservancy’s 2021 Implementation Plan details the Conservancy’s current projects meeting the goals in the Strategic Plan.
