Protected areas now cover around 14 percent of the world’s land surface. Planning and managing resources within these areas will be critical if protected areas are to continue providing an array of ecological, social and economic benefits and services.
In recognition of the central role of planning in protected area management, the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has stressed the need for up-to-date management plans in its Programme of Work on Protected Areas. However, less than a third of protected areas worldwide currently have management plans.
This module aims to provide a range of practical tools and exemplary best practices that can help managers develop a streamlined approach to management planning.
