Authors: Courrau, José, Dudley, Nigel, Hockings, Marc, Leverington, Fiona, Stolton, Sue,

The Framework for management effectiveness developed by the IUCN World Commission for Protected Areas was published in the first version of this Best Practice Guideline. It is further explained and interpreted, although not substantially altered, in this version. A number of key guidelines for good practice in evaluation are presented from many practitioners around the world, and important needs and directions for the future are identified.
