Resource Type: 
Description: 

Commissioned by the PARCC West Africa project (http://www.parcc-web.org/), Managing and financing protected areas to adapt to climate change: A rapid review of options involved: a) researching a broad range of possible 
options – i.e., adaptation strategies – for managing PAs to minimise climate change impacts, and b) reviewing possible financing mechanisms. 

Chapter 1 provides an overview of possible adaptation strategies, indicates those which are in use in West Africa already, and identifies how “change management” approaches can assist PA managers to successfully implement their chosen adaptation strategies. 

Chapter 2 reviews the broad number of PA financing mechanisms available, indicating which of these are commonly in use in West Africa, considers what’s different about adaptation financing for PAs, then suggests some specific criteria to take into account in developing PA adaptation and funding strategies in the region.

Chapter 3 provides a simple nine-step model is proposed to provide general guidance to PA managers in West Africa to 
successfully meet the challenges – and indeed opportunities – presented by climate change.
