This stream was focused on the intersections between protected areas, and the many development goals and challenges facing national governments. It will do so by providing concrete guidance and examples of how protected areas can be designed, managed, assessed and utilised to achieve both ambitious conservation goals, such as the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, and development plans. In particular, the stream looked at the way in which governments, at national and local levels, and businesses integrate protected areas and conservation into development policy, planning and programmes to ensure that wise trade-offs are made among sustainable development decisions and business practices.
