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.
