Protected areas cover a significant percentage of the world’s terrestrial surface, encompassing an area the size of Russia, India Afghanistan and Portugal combined. If we account for all of the community conserved areas and other types of informal conservation, the global protected area estate would be nearly double that. This is the largest deliberate land use in the world. For this reason, protected areas have a critical role to play as part of a global response to address climate change.

There are a number of well-recognized reasons why protected areas are a viable solution to climate change, but two of the most important are that protected areas mitigate carbon emissions and enable human and natural communities to adapt to climate change. Despite the obvious role that protected areas can play in addressing climate change, few protected area managers or policy makers have fully recognized this role.

Learner Objectives

The goal of this module is to provide a set of recommendations and guidelines for incorporating climate change aspects into every facet of protected area design and management, and highlights the clear role that protected areas can play in climate mitigation and adaptation.

Wow! The translation for this course was so good that I didn’t even realize that this course was originally in French! My apologies for not answering the survey question about that. Translation gets A++! A lot was new to me, especially the severity and complexity of the ramifications of climate change, I will recommend it to my associates. The certificate design needs some work though, I attach mine as an example, otherwise a great course.

In future iterations it would be really interesting to see more real world examples of how PAs are being better adapted to help mitigate the impacts of climate change and are serving as an important part of human adaptation strategy.

A lot of the remedial work may serve as exemplars for other places.
