IUCN WCPA TAPAS group planning for 2013: Online survey

Reflecting on the IUCN’s Tourism and Protected Area Specialist (TAPAS) group’s  achievements in 2012, we saw the publication of a special edition of PARKS, a series of workshops at the World Conservation Congress, presentations at the Convention on Biological Diversity meeting (among others), and an international workshop on tourism concessions. Thanks to all of you who drove and contributed towards these! 

We have been asked by the WCPA secretariat to compile the TAPAS 2012 annual report, which is due at the end of January.  I’d like to involve as many members as possible in the development of this report, and would like to invite you to contribute. 

To contribute to this year’s report, please visit this online survey to let us know about publications and presentations you’ve made on tourism and protected areas. We also what your input on what our priorities should be, within the three themes of the WCPA’s strategic directions for the 2013-2016 period:
1. Valuing and conserving nature
2. Governing nature’s use and sharing its benefits equally
3. Deploying nature-based solutions to global challenges. 
Please think about what you can contribute, and where you think our priorities should lie. 
The survey will be open until Friday 25 January 2013, and I look forward to your feedback.
