2021 Online Thematic Seminar on Management Challenges of Internationally Designated Areas // 2021 국제보호지역 관리자 역량강화 워크숍
-Background and Objectives-
Internationally Designated Areas (Biosphere Reserves, UNESCO Global Geoparks, World Heritage Sites, and Ramsar Sites) have a growing international role, as they offer abundant opportunities to realize the objectives of multilateral environmental agreements and to put into practice international strategies for environmental preservation and sustainable development, so contributing to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

With the steady increase in the number of Internationally Designated Areas, including Multi-Internationally Designated Areas, managers and administrators of such areas face even more complex and integrated challenges in 1) how to increase the involvement of local communities, 2) how to improve communication with visitors and the general public, and 3) how to promote ecotourism. Therefore, there is an increasing need for further in-depth research and capacity-building of those in charge of managing IDAs to ensure the proper and effective management of these areas.

The 2021 Online Thematic Seminar on Management Challenges of Internationally Designated Areas aims to provide an opportunity for managers of IDAs to improve their knowledge and management capacities, focusing on the above-mentioned challenges as the primary theme. Each day of the seminar will focus on a different challenge and will feature a keynote speech offering expert knowledge on the topic, and four case presentations on recent, outstanding management experiences, followed by a panel discussion.
