Miradi is a user-friendly software program that allows nature conservation practitioners to design, manage, monitor, and learn from their projects to more effectively meet their conservation goals. The program guides users through a series of step-by-step interview wizards based on the Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation used by major conservation organizations to plan and implement their work. Miradi is a Swahili word meaning “project” or “goal.”
Miradi helps conservation teams design conceptual models of their project site, prioritize threats, and select monitoring indicators to assess the effectiveness of their strategies. Conservation practitioners can export Miradi project data to donor reports and to formats that can be shared with other Miradi users. Miradi 2.0 was the first public release of the software created as a joint venture between Benetech® and the Conservation Measures Partnership (CMP) a consortium of global conservation organizations committed to improving the practice of conservation. The Miradi 1.0 beta version of the software was accessed by more than 600 conservation practitioners in 82 countries. For more information about Miradi, please visit www.miradi.org.
