Essentials of Protected Area Management in the Philippines
In 1992, the government of the Philippines signed the 'Convention on Biological Diversity'. Following its commitment under the Convention, the Philippine Congress enacted the National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAS) Act in the same year. To support the Philippine Government in the implementation of the Act, the European Commission co-financed the National Integrated Protected Areas Programme (NIPAP). NIPAP was set up to contribute to the conservation, protection and management of natural habitats and biodiversity within the country. Drawn from examples and information gathered in the NIPAP programme since 1995, this series presents valuable knowledge intended for protected areas managers and conservation workers. The volumes are all of a concise and applied nature and would prove useful to anyone involved in the management or creation of conservation areas.
