About this book

In 1994, IUCN launched Parks for Life: Action for Protected Areas in Europe - a plan devised by IUCN with 200 partners to ensure an adequate, effective and well-managed network of protected areas in Europe. In November 1997, some 150 protected area experts from 34 countries met to review progress and chart a course for future work. Containing 11 papers and 6 workshop reports, emphasis is on the implementation of 5 Priority Projects: Upgrading the management of Category II sites; Identifying potential World Heritage sites; Building cooperation in trans-boundary protected areas; Restoring wetlands in protected areas; and Conserving land used by the military. A feature is a detailed account of the Category II national parks in Europe by H.D. Knapp, outlining their ecosystem coverage and management issues, including a full list.
