GEF in action : sustaining wilderness areas (English)

Keeping wilderness areas intact can provide sustainable economic returns for both local and remote human communities through such activities as ecological research, ecotourism, the harvesting of medicinal plants, and the provision of environmental services. This paper discusses various Global Environment Facility (GEF)-supported projects for protecting wilderness areas, including a project in the Russian Federation's Kamchatka Peninsula, the Dana Nature Reserve and the Azraq Wetland Reserve in Jordan, the Amazon Region Protected Area Program in Brazil, and the Western Congo Basin Moist Forest Eco-region project.
