Protected areas systems review of the Indo-Malayan Realm (English)

This report documents the growth and changing character of the protected areas systems of the Indo-Malayan Realm over the period 1986-96 with a view to: 1) evaluate the representational coverage and conservation importance of the existing protected areas system; 2) identify gaps and shortcomings in the existing system; 3) identify sites of global priority for conservation ; and 4) monitor progress on the development of protected areas within the Realm. The report evaluates the protected areas systems from the following viewpoints: how much of each country and its bio-geographical sub-divisions are under protection status; the management effectiveness in individual countries; the coverage in relation to species richness, centers of endemism, and in relation to threats to habitat. It also provides specific suggestions on how the present approaches and initiatives relating to protected areas management could be improved throughout the Realm.
