The Clark Center for the Study of Natural Resource Extraction and Society presents:
The Impermanence of Protected Areas: Challenges and Opportunities for Conservation Science, Policy, and Practice
Rachel Golden Kroner, Conservation International
Rachel Golden Kroner is a social scientist at the Moore Center for Science at Conservation International, focused on environmental governance. She leads the organization’s work on PADDD.
Emerging literature concerning PADD (Protected Area Downgrading, Downsizing, and Degazettement) is largely related to expanding resource extraction and development, relaxing restrictions to enable access to resources by Indigenous and local communities, and in rare cases, foster more informed conservation planning. This talk will highlight global evidence of PADDD and its implications for conservation science, showcase applications of this research to-date, and discuss opportunities for area-based conservation in a post-COVID world.
