Expert Workshop

Expert workshop on protected areas

In response to the request contained in paragraph 8 (d) of recommendation 1/4 of the first meeting of the Working Group on Protected Areas, an expert workshop on protected areas took place on 17 and 18 March 2006 in Curtiba, Brazil. Workshop participants concluded that reporting on review of implementation of the programme of work on protected areas should concentrate on outputs to gain an understanding of the overall progress towards targets and highlight the most significant challenges and obstacles. The participants also developed an evaluation matrix for the review of implementation of the programme of work on protected areas to provide for a strategic assessment of progress made, challenges/obstacles, and capacity-building needs
