Global action for biodiversity : an international framework for implementing the convention on biological diversity by Timothy M Swanson( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the nations of the world adopted the Convention on Biological Diversity. Since then, over 160 countries have ratified the Convention, three Conferences of the Parties have taken place and a permanent secretariat has been established. Despite this, there remains a lot of uncertainty and even controversy about what the Convention was intended to accomplish and how it was to do so." "This book, published in association with IUCN - The World Conservation Union, sets out to answer some of these questions by recounting the history of the movements leading up to the Convention, but especially by analysing the forces giving rise to the problem. It provides a specific set of policy prescriptions intended to facilitate the development of institutions and obligations within the international community which will give real effect to the aspirations of the Convention, and to ensure that it has some real effect at ground level." "The book is an excellent introduction to a very topical debate, and a valuable reference point for conservationists, policy makers and students of development studies, environmental studies, environmental policy and conservation biology."--Jacket

Partnerships for protection : new strategies for planning and management for protected areas by Sue Stolton( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking into consideration the fact that many ecosystems are under-represented in protected areas of land and water and traditional management methods have often been ineffective, this volume describes how improvements can be made. Specifically, it explores ways of ensuring that all major ecosystems are safeguarded, and innovative approaches to conservation involving individuals, communities, companies and governments. The essence of the approach taken in the text is to build partnerships with those who have a stake in the care of land and water resources

The countryside is changing faster than ever. Fifty years of conservation achievements in the UK are now being confronted by a new complexion of economic forces that are driving change in the countryside.

People, plants, and protected areas : a guide to in situ management by John D Tuxill( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conservation of plant resources is often focused on seed banks and botanical gardens.

The book aims to facilitate better management of protected areas and to illustrate new approaches to conservation of plants within their landscapes. It draws on concepts from forestry, the agricultural sciences, anthropology, ethnology and ethnobotany and should be useful to practitioners, academics and p
