Ensuring the RELEVANCE of Wilderness and Protected Areas in a Changing World
The report developed in 2011 examines citizenry connection to protected areas managed by NAWPA member agencies via visitation and public opinion on select issues. It reviews 100 studies to further understanding on the following:
- Who is visiting/using protected areas managed by NAWPA members, and is there a difference between countries and land types?
- What is the importance of these protected areas to the citizenry of each country?
- What is the perceived relevance of these protected areas to the citizenry of each country in the context of climate change (specifically, landscape management as a response to climate change and biodiversity loss)?
