An Introduction to Business Planning for Protected Areas

An Introduction to Business Planning for Protected Areas

This webinar originally aired on 9 November 2017.

A workshop on business planning was recently held to support the financial future of protected areas in Seychelles. Outputs developed under this project have global application. This presentation will outline the importance of business planning for protected areas and how business plans can be used as tools to leverage financial support for conservation management. The presentation will also provide an introduction to the components of business plans and a database of protected area business plans where users can access over 45 examples of protected area business plans and guidelines.

This webinar was presented by Andrew Rylance, Technical Advisor to the Government of Seychelles-United Nations Development Programme-Global Environment Facility (GOS-UNDP-GEF) Protected Area Financing Project (2016-2021). Webinar co-sponsored by the NOAA National MPA Center, MPA News, and the EBM Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and OCTO).


Hi Andrews! Do you have information about the impacts of PA's business plans in Central America beside Belize? I mean, does have some business plan applied successfully in Central America' countries and what are the lesson learned? At this time I am preparing a free online course in Spanish about how to improve financial support in the frame of the public use programs. Your webinar gave me some new ideas, and your experience in this matter is very valuable to design this course.  Thank you very much for this webinar.
