There are three main intervention areas: strengthening the institutional framework for protected areas governance and co-management; enhancing management effectiveness within a rationalised and more representative system of protected areas (IUCN management category II and IV National Park, Provincial Nature Reserves and Marine Protected Area), operating under PA governance and co-management agreements with local communities and the private sector; and developing a functioning network of effectively managed multiple resource use protected areas (IUCN management category V and VI Protected Natural Environments and Indigenous State Forests) in active collaboration with local communities.
