Protected area monitoring tools

The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in early 2004 produced a Programme of Work on Protected Areas, in which Parties to the convention are called to assess at least 30 per cent of their parks and their networks of protected areas, by 2010. To assist parties in this, the Worldwide Fund for Wildlife (WWF) has created two management effectiveness tools: the tracking tool and WWF’s RAPPAM methodology. The tracking tool has been developed to provide a quick overview of progress in improving the effectiveness of management in individual protected areas, to be filled in by the protected area manager or other relevant site staff. You can read more about the tools on the WWF's web site.
