There are various conservation processes which have been tried and tested in the Pacific Islands. These include, the Conservation Action Planning (CAP) method, Open Standards for Conservation and other participatory methods such as Participatory Learning and Action (PLA) etc. This section is intended to provide guidance on the use of these tools, along with examples of how and where they have worked in the region.
The Protected Areas Benefits Assessment Tool+ (PA-BAT+) aims to collate and assess information about the overall benefits from conservation and protection in protected areas. It can also be used in other area-based conservation sites.
