Chapter Summary

All protected areas need to be managed. Having adequate plans to effectively manage the natural sites in question is a key part of most, if not all protected area regimes. Every area, to qualify for its recognition as protected, must have a specific legal status guaranteeing its protection. Every protected area must have clear boundaries. There is no specific rule on the necessary size of a protected area, beyond the fact that a site should be big enough to preserve the integrity of the area. Zoning is the principal method used to control uses within or next to a protected area. Having adequate staff and associated resources is recognised in all protected area regimes. Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) is, 'a process of evaluating the likely environmental impacts of a proposed project or development, taking into account interrelated socio-economic, cultural and human health impacts, both beneficial and adverse.
