Bulletin Issue 73 – August 2003

FOCUSED ON: PROTECTED AREAS AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES

The Vth IUCN World Parks Congress will be held in Durban, South Africa, from 8 to 17 September, 2003. Given that this is a 10 yearly event which according to its organisers “provides the major global forum for setting the agenda for protected areas”, we have dedicated this full bulletin to the controversial issue of protected areas in their relationship with people.
