About this book

Assesses cutting-edge efforts to establish new kinds of parks and protected areas which are based on partnerships with indigenous peoples. The book chronicles new conservation thinking and the establishment around the world of indigenously-inhabited protected areas, provides detailed case studies of the most important types of co-managed and indigenously-managed areas, and offers guidelines, models, and recommendations for international action. It also provides in-depth accounts from Nepal, Australia, New Guinea, Nicaragua, Honduras, Canada, and Alaska of some of the most promising efforts to develop protected areas where indegenous people maintain their rights to settlement and subsistence and participate in management.
