About this book

Published on behalf of The Task Force on Tourism and Protected Areas of the World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) of the World Conservation Union (IUCN), this book serves as a comprehensive record of the tourism issues discussed at the World Parks Congress held in Durban, South Africa in 2003. The issues discussed reflect the past 10 years of global challenges and lessons learnt in protected area management, the place of tourism in this and the projected issues for the next decade.
