Urban protected areas : profiles and best practice guidelines

Complete Title: 
Urban protected areas : profiles and best practice guidelines
IUCN Publication

As our cities continue to grow, we should defend the protection of natural areas and even try to create new space for nature within this urban fabric. This volume explains the context and concept of urban protected areas, profiles urban protected areas in 15 metropolitan areas around the world, and offers best practice guidelines. Although it emphasizes management approaches and is designed primarily for managers of urban protected areas and those responsible for protected area systems, it has been written with a broader readership in mind.
