International legal regime for protected areas

Conservation organisations are lobbying hard for a new international law on protected areas. Parks Canada commissioned the World Conservation Union to write this set of papers exploring the scope of such a law. The papers look at different possible legal arrangements for protected areas as well as who might provide funding. The papers will be discussed at the forthcoming World Parks Congress in Durban in September 2003.
