Security considerations in the planning and management of transboundary conservation areas

Complete Title: 
Security considerations in the planning and management of transboundary conservation areas
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Sometimes boundaries make geographical sense. Other times they are straight lines, imposed by colonial powers centuries ago. Today, territorial integrity is a foundation principle of the relations between governments, but even so, boundary conflicts are still unresolved in many parts of the world. This book demonstrates how transboundary conservation initiatives can help to defuse boundary conflicts, and sometimes even solve them. It discusses management and security considerations that should be foremost in the minds of those who are responsible for transboundary conservation areas. Both conservation and peace among peoples can be promoted through investing in implementation of these guidelines.
