Presentation Transcript

  1. The World Database on Protected Areas Consortium Silvio Olivieri WDPA Consortium

  2. The growth of WDPA • A Success story… • WDPA 2004: double the size of WDPA 2003 in 4 months… • Publication of WDPA 2003 catalyzed interest in providing new datasets • the first delivery of the Biodiversity Knowledge Commons

  3. WDPA 2004 Advances • Double amount of data (1GB) • GIS data: from 18% of PAs (I-VI) with polygons to 37% coverage • 10,000 CD-Roms distributed

  4. WDPA 2004 limitations • Polygon coverage: provide analysis for I-VI in surface area protected and in hotspots.

  5. The 12+ % Protected • Is the 12+% of Terrestrial Area Protected worldwide an overestimate?… • Quality of coverage of data sources (i.e. missing data) • Quality of the data (i.e. wrong data) • Quality control (wrong manipulation of data) • A role for field based organizations: WCPA and Consortium members

  6. Data quality issues that affects % area protected estimate • Inaccuracy of point-data surface figures • Terrestrial / marine components of PAs • The inclusion of “non-IUCN” areas • Overlapping PAs (Venezuela worst case) • Missing data

  7. Data quality issues that affects % area protected estimate • Inaccuracy of point-data surface figures • Terrestrial / marine components of PAs • The inclusion of “non-IUCN” areas • Overlapping PAs (Venezuela worst case) • Missing data

  8. Data quality issues that affects % area protected estimate • Inaccuracy of point-data surface figures • Terrestrial / marine components of PAs • The inclusion of “non-IUCN” areas • Overlapping PAs (Venezuela worst case) • Missing data

  9. Coiba Marine PA

  10. Tortuguero, Costa Rica

  11. Data quality issues that affects % area protected estimate • Inaccuracy of point-data surface figures • Terrestrial / marine components of PAs • The inclusion of “non-IUCN” areas • Overlapping PAs (Venezuela worst case) • Missing data

  12. Non-IUCN PAs • ~36,000 PAs • in 186 countries • of 401 different types • Include many areas that shuould be in categories I – VI • Include many that should not be counted for conservation purposes

  13. Non-IUCN PAs

  14. Data quality issues that affects % area protected estimate • Inaccuracy of point-data surface figures • Terrestrial / marine components of PAs • The inclusion of “non-IUCN” areas • Overlapping PAs (Venezuela worst case) • Missing data

  15. Venezuela – Brazil border

  16. Data quality issues that affects % area protected estimate • Inaccuracy of point-data surface figures • Terrestrial / marine components of PAs • The inclusion of “non-IUCN” areas • Overlapping PAs (Venezuela worst case) • Missing data

  17. PAs w/o geographic location

  18. Current status

  19. International PAs

  20. The Management of WDPA • Transparent protocols • Database management integrated in database at field level • Quality control systems and protocols

  21. The architecture of WDPA • Missing features in relation to data contents • Marine / terrestrial components of PAs • PAs with zoning, with different IUCN categories • No history of data evolution • No redundant / alternate data • Data estimates for key fields • Data accuracy for key fields • Better management of data sources / metadata

  22. The delivery of the WDPA • Annual releases of stable versions • Central database up-to-date • Proposed architecture called for a service-oriented database that would allow other organizations to link additional data, information or analysis

  23. Annual Plan for 2004 • WDPA 2004 by COP7 • WDPA 2005 (by WCC, November 2004) • Development of WDPA • Architecture • Decentralization • Transparent Procedures and Protocols • Quality Control • Expand & improve contents • WDPA Website to link users • Insure sustained funding • Mobilize WCPA members at regional levels • Engage major stakeholders (CBD/CHM,…)

  24. IUCN UNEP World Commission on Protected Areas UNEP - World Conservation Monitoring Centre Governance WDPA Advisory Council WDPA Consortium WDPA Partners Network • Chinese Academy of Science • Univ. of Buenos Aires • EEA, European Env. Agency • … • Convention on Biological • Diversity • RAMSAR • … WDPA

  25. New datasets (partial list) • Mesoamerica • Brazil • Venezuela • Colombia • Caribbean • Micronesia – Polynesia • Egypt • Iran • …
