  Supporting the Sustainable Management of Amphibian and Reptile Biodiversity

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can
change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." --Anon.

Reverse Innovation is the development of simpler and more economical technologies in countries, or in cultures that possess limited resources. These innovations then benefit people globally including those inhighly industrialised countries. 

Sustainability as a driver will provide the most inclusive and efficient program for amphibian and reptile conservation. Costs for management, production, and marketing within poor economies are low meaning both lower prices and wages for essentials. This economy fits well with sustainability in that it encourages low resource use and consumption. 

We based the ARC in Belize, a stable, friendly, and highly biodiverse developing country. Through fostering reverse innovation we have reframed the problem space of scientific publication and regional networking to help solve one of the world's toughest problems, the perpetuation of global biodiversity.

We are now developing smarter, simpler, more economical, and more highly targeted methods, and more transparent, efficient and effective management. 

The Internet offers remarkable potential for the benefit of humanity, including increasing global capacity for amphibian and reptile conservation, by providing information through websites, publications, and data bases. 

Innovation starts with education, and Internet based education with sustainability and biodiversity conservation as a central theme is a priority for the ARC.

We are expanding our sophisticated Internet and media presence through distribution among our Regional Nodes through their unique personnel, cultures, skills, experience, and vision.
