Routledge – 1999 – 306 pages
Taking into consideration the fact that many ecosystems are under-represented in protected areas of land and water and traditional management methods have often been ineffective, this volume describes how improvements can be made. Specifically, it explores ways of ensuring that all major ecosystems are safeguarded, and innovative approaches to conservation involving individuals, communities, companies and governments. The essence of the approach taken in the text is to build partnerships with those who have a stake in the care of land and water resources.
The state of the world's protected areas; adopting new approaches to protected area selection; building stronger alliances with people; seeking a wider range of partners and values; developing new models for protected areas management.
