Raising Revenues for Protected Areas

This report is a comprehensive guide to financing protected areas. In an age of government budget cuts and declining international aid, this guide is intended a practical tool for those involved in and interested in how protected areas can be creatively funded. The guide covers government budget allocations; grants and donations; and user fees, taxes, fines, and other revenues generated to fund protected areas. Included are examples of how such mechanisms are hard at work around the world and WWF's role in their development and implementation.
