Resolving inconsistencies around the categorization of protected areas will also require working with governments, as it is governments’ responsibility (not IUCN’s) to assign categories to their protected areas. Furthermore, as the management of protected areas has often been nominal, or even absent, this has led to the degradation of values on which the original categorization was based, meaning that the protected area may be less effective than it should be. This does not mean, however, that such protected areas warrant de-designation, as only a thorough analysis of whether the lost values can be restored can draw conclusions about how ‘degraded’ a protected area really is.

This might require: a. Developing more technical guidance on the application of the IUCN categories system, based on previous experience from Europe and Australia. b. Identifying how to incorporate a broader range of stakeholder perspectives into PA categorization and decision-making and how to build in the latest scientific advancements in biological, social and economic assessment. c. Encouraging governments to carry out periodic reviews of their PA systems, which could help provide critical information on underrepresented ecosystems and could be done in conjunction with updates of the World Protected Areas Database.
