Creative participatory methodologies for protected areas management: Innovative approaches and challenges View E-poster

Abstract

This poster represents a continuation of two successful Knowledge Cafés conducted at IUCN World Parks Congress in Barcelona in 2008 and in Jeju in 2012 and a Poster in Sydney 2014. Its objective is to present our experience and promote discussion and sharing of experiences concerning innovative methodological and pedagogical approaches for protected areas management. Participatory methodologies for protected areas management represent one of the main challenges related to social inclusion and benefit sharing concerning biodiversity conservation strategies. However, there is still limited experience and critical reflexion, in terms of possible tools and methodological development and evaluation. Taking into consideration the need to promote biodiversity protection with social commitment, the development of social technology and new approaches in protected areas participatory management can be considered as key issues related to the Biological Diversity Convention principles and goals and to the new agreed Sustainable Development Goals. In this poster, the experience from an ongoing project, a serious game named SimParc (http://www-desir.lip6.fr/~briot/simparc) about participatory management of national parks in Brazil will be used as an example to share experiences and questions, to foster discussions and to strengthen networking with this objective. The overall objective of this poster presentation is, with the different partners, to discuss “pilot projects" and solutions to evaluate their potential for future use in building capacity for human resources training and policy decision making. The key questions to be answered will be: What can be considered as innovation in pedagogical methodological approaches for protected areas participatory management? What are the needs and challenges to be faced? To what extent computer games can be used as a management tool? How to strengthen participatory management based on serious games and new social technologies? We hope that thanks to the poster presentation and discussion, it will be possible to identify the main issues to be dealt with and to identify different partners for a future network concerning participatory methodological development and analysis for protected areas management. This event will be aligned with the need for engaging civil society and local empowerment in the discussion of public policies and for strengthening local action for biodiversity conservation. We plan to engage the World Commission of Protected Areas (WCPA/IUCN), different academic institutions, NGOs (such as CI, ISA, and others), representatives of public policies and of management committees of protected areas, national and local governmental agencies and international development agencies.
