Attached presentation explains that technology is a fundamental part of our everyday lives, whether it is making a telephone call, traveling to a meeting, or typing a report. The same holds true for protected area design, management and assessment —there is a wide range of technologies that can help improve nearly every aspect of protected area management. Over the past decade,
technologies for protected areas has become increasingly sophisticated, including the use of computers, software, remotely-sensed data, global positioning systems (GPS), digital cameras, drones and other types of equipment and data. Such technologies can play a key role in protected area management, but in many places, these technologies are not
widely available, are too expensive, or are too difficult to use.
It was present during Week 4 of the CBD-UNDP-IFDD-PRCM e-course on 'Protected Area Systems: Management and Design' held from 1 June to 26 July 2016.
