Presetation title: Monetizing the Unrealized Economic Value of Africa’s Protected Area System: A System at Risk

It is widely recognized that protected areas need a reliable source of funding to maintain their daily management operations, meet conservation targets and provide quality visitor experiences where appropriate, and that the current funding available is wholly inadequate. This presentation will highlight the gap in protected area finance, the ramifications of reliance on donor funding and flagship species and parks, and how the African Wildlife Foundation is working to support protected area authorities in maximizing the economic potential of their parks.
