Abstract: 

This book provides a concise and persuasive overview of the values of protected areas. Contributing authors examine a wide range of values that are maintained in protected areas, including cultural and spiritual values, and how they relate to issues such as food, water, materials, health and tourism, as well as capacity for buffering against climate change and natural disasters. The book also considers the role of protected areas in poverty reduction strategies, and their relationship with traditional and indigenous people and in fostering conflict resolution through 'peace park' initiatives.
