The 5th volume in the WWF series for the Arguments for Protection project.
Natural Security: Protected Places and Hazard Mitigation
BY WWF AND EQUILIBRIUM | 31 MAY 2016
The Arguments for Protection project is assembling evidence on the social and economic benefits of protected areas to widen and strengthen support for park creation and management. In this volume we explore the increasing number and severity of so-called natural disasters, review how environmental degradation is contributing to this trend, look at how conservation through protection is currently mitigating the impacts of hazards and disasters and discuss the options for further developing the role of protected areas in disaster prevention and mitigation strategies.
