Private Sector Initiatives in Nature Conservation


  • Bennett, Jeffrey W.


The provision and management of protected natural areas has generally been regarded as the province of governments. Yet there are theoretical arguments to support the contention that the private sector can play a valuable role in nature conservation. There are also numerous examples of private sector initiatives in countries as economically, culturally and environmentally diverse as Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Vanuatu.
