Protected areas: buffering nature against climate change


This publication presents discussions on the key role of Australia's National Reserve System in enabling biodiversity, native plants and wildlife to adapt to and survive climate change.

It is a compilation of the proceedings of a World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature World Commission on Protected Areas (IUCN-WCPA) symposium, 18-19 June 2007, Canberra, where scientists, non-governmental and governmental experts were brought together to find ways for Australia to become a global leader in providing nature the best chance of adapting successfully through a climate change rescue package for biodiversity.

The papers presented here cover management, regional and reserve system planning issues.
