IUCN has developed this standardized methodology for Conservation Outlook Assessments of natural World Heritage sites.
BirdLife International has developed this global framework for monitoring the conservation status of, threats to, and conservation actions at IBAs.
The Enhancing our Heritage (EoH) Toolkit contains twelve practical tools for assessing the management effectiveness of natural World Heritage sites.
A guidebook of natural and social indicators for evaluating marine protected areas (MPAs) management effectiveness.
The Rapid Assessment and Prioritization of Protected Area Management (RAPPAM) Methodology can be used to for a rapid assessment of the overall management effectiveness of a protected areas system.
The Integrated Management Effectiveness Tool (IMET) provides operational support to protected area (PA) authorities and managers in the planning, monitoring and evaluation of PA performance.
The Management Effectiveness Tracking Tool (METT) was designed to measure progress in management effectiveness at particular sites over time.
First published in 2002, the METT was one of the first tools developed to reflect the IUCN WCPA framework for protected area management effectiveness, and since then it has become one of the most used PAME tools across the globe.
BIOPAMA Reference Information System (RIS 2.0), our web-based, open-source information system for protected areas across the 79 countries of the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) Group of States.
The RIS 2.0 is a major re-design, so you’ll find a very different look and feel if you were a user of the previous system. But don’t worry, you can still navigate easily across regions, countries or individual protected areas to find the information you need, with an intuitive, map-centric interface.
Marxan Web is an online version of the widely-used DOS-base decision support tool called Marxan. The purpose of the tool is to support the extension of protected area networks using algorithms which optimise the protection for key conservation features at minimum cost.
It's the first major pre-requisite for setting up a BIOPAMA Regional Node
