Scientific/technical activitiesThis year we produced Guidelines on Privately Protected Areas as part of IUCN WCPA’s Best Practice Guidelines series. This was a significant achievement for our volunteer group and represents a major milestone in elevating the recognition, understanding and integrity of PPAs worldwide. The Guidelines resulted from a scoping workshop hosted by the BfN Institute for Nature Conservation (Vilm, Germany) in July 2017. Material from the ___ participants from ___ countries formed the basis and structure for a first draft. All nine members of our core “PPA Strategists” group served as co-authors in refining the material. The Guidelines benefitted from very extensive review. Over 1,000 people were directly invited to comment on the draft, hundreds contributed in some way, and over 40 (from all but one WCPA region) provided detailed comments. The final Guidelines provide principles and best practices, organized in eight sections and supplemented with many in-text examples and 12 longer case studies in an appendix. Also in 2018 we secured commitments to translate the Guidelines to Spanish, French and Portuguese. Completed
