Human pressure potential index in PAs

Human pressure potential index in PAs

Indicator of potential human pressure in and around protected areas derived from indices of forest loss, population and agriculture pressures (DOPA 4.0).

This indicator is a proxi for potential human activities pressure inside and in a 10km-buffer around protected areas.  Therefore it may indicate potential vulnerability in conditions whereby protected area financial resources, local economy and supply chains are disrupted by national and/or international crises, and so coping and adaptation strategies may consist in an increased pressure from human activities on natural resources.

It is a component of the vulnerablity indicator to gloabl tourism and travel crisis.
