State of the world's protected areas at the end of the twentieth century

dc.contributor.authorUnited Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (United Nations Environment Programme-WCMC)
dc.descriptionProtected areas are widely held to be among the most effective means of conserving biological diversity in situ (McNeely and Miller, 1984
dc.descriptionMacKinnon et ai, 1986
dc.descriptionLeader Williams et al, 1990). A considerable amount of resources has been invested in their establishment over the last century or more, with the result that most countries have established or, at least, planned national systems of protected areas. The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent of the world's protected areas globally and regionally and to consider other options for its further strengthening and development during the twenty-first century.
