“Protected areas are the foundations of our future”

The World Parks Congress will be held in Sydney from 12 to 19 November. It will be focusing on a specific subject: protected areas. There are now over 200,000 protected areas. They are very diverse: large, small, community- or State-based, forest or mountain areas, desert or marine areas… but they are all working towards the same goal: conserve nature.
What are the main challenges facing protected areas in Africa today? How to address them? How to explain the good results achieved for conservation by certain countries? What makes protected areas important in the fight against climate change? Geoffroy Mauvais, coordinator of the IUCN Program on African Protected Areas & Conservation gives you the answers!
