This database of tools and resources is still incomplete – please consider contributing and sharing your resources, including guidance materials, case studies, websites and more.

Website
Protectedplanet.net is the new face of the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA), a joint initiative between IUCN and UNEP-WCMC. Its humble beginnings started 30 years ago as a basic global list of national parks and has evolved into the only global, spatially referenced information source on parks and protected areas . We have created protectedplanet.net not only to showcase this wealth of information but also give tools to willing ‘citizen scientists’ who can feed their knowledge about protected areas into the WDPA.
