The Capstone team developed a policy paper intended to inform key decision makers about the current debate surrounding the use of participatory techniques in establishing and managing Protected Areas in the developing world. The discussion includes an examination of the theoretical debate surrounding the appropriateness of such techniques and their alternatives and looks at case studies to explore how some of these key themes play out in practice. The findings include recommendations learned from both the literature and case studies.
