To help ensure protected area effectiveness, a firm and supportive legal framework must be used to secure individual protected areas, as well as protected area systems. This module presents the fundamentals of contemporary protected areas law. The purpose of the lessons is to build local and national capacity to create legal frameworks that are compatible with conservation designations. Methods for improving legal compliance with international biodiversity conservation commitments are also discussed. This module will increase your literacy about the legal elements of international law obligations and effective protected areas system management, and improve your knowledge of best management practices. The module is designed for protected area managers and conservation practitioners.

Learner Objectives

This module aims to provide you with an introduction to designing the legal framework for a national protected areas system and discusses core principles, concepts, and elements to take into account during the design process. The module also provides an overview of three special topics in protected areas law: marine protected areas, transboundary protected areas, and connectivity between protected areas. An effective and equitable protected areas system may require a comprehensive legal framework that is designed to addresses these issues.
