Conservation | Landscapes

The conservation of landscapes is not without its challenges. National Parks, World Heritage Areas and other protected areas have seen attempts at formalising conservation initiatives, too often at the expense of local communities who see their cultural values and attachments to landscapes become secondary to the protection function. Thankfully these ideas are shifting now, and communities/local people are seen as being an important, if not crucial, part of the conservation equation in landscapes.


This portfolio focuses on national parks, world heritage areas and community-led conservation initiatives.

Communities | Landscapes

One of the really important shifts in thinking about landscapes has been recognising that people and communities are part of them. Because they are, they have incredibly important roles to play in conservation and sustainability of the landscapes where they live, and there are lessons to be learned which are important for all landscapes.
