Decision-Making in Conservation: A model to Improve the Allocation of Resources amongst National Parks
The ability of government agencies to manage threats to their national parks is often compromised by limited resources and institutional complexity. Ms Allan''sresearch highlighted the need for protected area management agencies to take lessons from the commercial sector and incorporate elements of business practices into conservation decisions. In particular, these elements included comprehensive inventory and data management. The decision-making approach developed in her research aggregated complex data in a way that improves governments’ ability to manage national parks and the associated environmental, economic, and social benefits they provide to society.
