Protected Areas


Abstract: Thousands of new parks and protected areas have been set up in developing countries, most with high expectations for protecting terrestrial and marine habitats, attracting ecotourists, and producing economic benefits for local people. But how many are really successful twenty or more years after establishment? Do they truly protect all the important natural values and the full range of ecosystem services? Is there a need to reform the role of protected areas by integrating them into wider landscapes? Should we have protected areas that protect peoples and cultures inside their boundaries or should they be inviolate centers for protection of biodiversity?
