Use the information to identify gaps

Northern Madagascar


Prioritise gaps to be filled

Kinabatangan River, Malaysia


Agree strategy and take action

Valle des Baobabs: Madagascar


Increasingly these processes are expected to involve a wide range of stakeholders…


Filling the gaps

  • All gaps can’t be filled at once, so PRIORITIZE.

  • Prioritize based on threat, leverage, opportunity, irreplaceability, feasibility

  • Consider early wins to build momentum, enthusiasm for protected areas locally and nationally


Options for filling gaps

  • Create new protected areas

  • Expand boundaries of existing protected areas

  • Improve management of existing managed areas

  • Consider other conserved areas

Elements of a gap analysis


Creating NEW protected areas

  • New federal lands – consider issues of compensation, land and water purchase/acquisition

  • Consider supporting creation of state and municipal reserves as part of national PA network (e.g. Bolivia)

  • Consider aligning with other socio-economic-cultural opportunities, e.g. ecosystem services, cultural sites, recreational sites

  • Use a variety of different management purposes (categories) and governance types to meet goals.

Elements of a gap analysis


Other managed areas as seeds for protected areas

  • Forest Reserves (state, community, indigenous –owned)

  • Riparian or wetland protection policies

  • Fisheries regulations

  • Recreational areas

  • Other Conventions (e.g. Ramsar)

Elements of a gap analysis


IUCN has a definition and six categories of protected areas, defined by their management objective

  • An area of land and/or sea especially dedicated to the protection and maintenance of biological diversity, and of natural and associated cultural resources, and managed through legal or other effective means


Need for restoration?

  • Restoration may be necessary to have functional sites that will meet conservation, protection goals

  • May be passive succession, designation of only partially degraded lands (e.g. shaded agriculture), or active restoration efforts

  • Important to identify best locales where restoration can be successful (e.g. with sources of plants, wildlife)

Elements of a gap analysis


Consider Other Forms of Reserves and Governance

  • Promoting Private Reserves

  • Supporting Indigenous Managed Lands

  • Looking at co-management options

Elements of a gap analysis


IUCN increasing sees protected areas being defined by both management objectives (category) and governance type


Improved management of existing protected areas

  • Improved management effectiveness to make paper parks functional.

  • Adjust and expand boundaries to capture biodiversity representation and ecological needs

  • Changes in governance and protected area category

Elements of a gap analysis


The gap analysis should also at least consider well-managed land and water outside protected areas
