new partners in support of protected areas

The Vth IUCN World Parks Congress held in 2003 in Durban, South Africa was host to a stream of workshops dedicated to the broad topic of building support for protected areas. As a means of providing a more coherent picture, a separate set of workshops was held on communicating the benefits of protected areas. The collection of papers contained within this publication brings together the experience and wisdom of the leading thinkers and practitioners of protected area planning and management. The editor has successively integrated the disparate and often complex literature and debate around this subject, deducing the “lessons learned” by so many researchers, managers, teachers and local communities.
