Description

Webinar #4 will focus on understanding the resources and international examples provided by the newly released IUCN Best Practice Guidelines, entitled "Tourism and Visitor Management in Protected Areas: Guidelines for Sustainability” (ST-BPG). Accessible via the IUCN Web Portal (https://portals.iucn.org/library/node/47918), this publication was a global collaboration of 58 contributing authors from 24 countries and territories. It contains a wealth of best-practice examples to help managers achieve sustainable visitation and tourism in protected areas worldwide. SORP has assembled two members of the ST-BPG editorial team to discuss:

  • The development, objectives and target audience of these new IUCN Guidelines
  • The scope and content areas of this publication as related to visitor use management
  • The resources available from the ST-BPG Online Resource Directory and relevant IUCN platforms
  • Selected international examples of visitor use management

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
