How can I help?

FIVE linked major programmatic priorities are needed to pursue IUCN’s mission and to align with IUCN’s new business plan and emerging 2013 – 2016 Programme:

  1. Enhance the capacity to effectively manage protected areas systems to conserve biodiversity
  2. Mainstream protected areas as natural solutions to global challenges, including biodiversity loss and climate change
  3. Foster equitable governance of protected area systems
  4. Facilitate the economic role and sustainable financing of protected areas systems
  5. Communicate and advocate the value of protected area systems

You are invited to indicate how you or your organization can help IUCN’s Global Protected Area Programme to undertake these initiatives, announce them at the World Conservation Congress in Jeju, Korea in 2012, implement them through the IUCN Quadrennial Programme 2013-2016, and celebrate successes and envisage future scenarios at the once in ten year IUCN World Parks Congress in 2014.

Third Generation Protected Areas Model
The outcomes of a proposed PA research project in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa could be extended to the rest of Southern Africa. The research project provides a model based on initial studies undertaken on PA's in Austria which introduces the concept of "third generation protected areas". The study classifies PA's into first, second and third generation protected areas. The classification determines the most appropriate conservation management plan for each PA based on its natural assets and unique characterisitcs. This avoids a 'one size fits all' approach to PA management.

Enhance the capacity to effectively manage protected areas systems to conserve biodiversity
First protector of PA's are front line staff of the Forest divisions and PA managers. Enhancing their capacity towards and embrace them towards ecological benefits of biological diversity can help to conserve biodiversity, Since most of the PA's of India have local people as their first protectors. Enhancing their capacity towards patrolling, mapping, profiling of PA can add extra value in protector.

Help with communicate and advocating the value of protected area systems
India is on a fast-growth path, but it is doing this by consuming ecosystems whose worth has neither been understood, nor evaluated. Sanctuary Asia, the magazine I edit, has a vast network of economists, conservation biologists, activists, students, photographers and journalists and we could work to create a listing of ecosystem services that key Indian national parks and sanctuaries offer.

Help with thematic maps - a much needed service
Effectiveness assessment of protected area management has made significant progress in recent years but, being largely qualitative and perception based, tends to lack spatial focus. As a balance, each protected area should have a set of thematic maps to illustrate management priorities, effort and outcome. Their quality would reflect the level of management capacity with respect to the IUCN-WCPA assessment framework categories.
The ProtectedPlanet Initiative seems an ideal vehicle for preparing maps based on recent satellite imagery.
