The World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) is compiled and managed by the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, an executive agency of the United Nations Environment Programme. It uses the IUCN and CBD definitions of protected areas to determine whether a site should be included in the WDPA. The twenty largest protected areas in the October edition of the WDPA are listed below, in order. The Sperrgebiet is part of the Succulent Karoo biome, the world’s only arid hotspot. The Sperrgebiet holds an extraordinary level of succulent plant diversity, sustained by the winter rainfall patterns and the sea fog characteristic of the southern Namib Desert. the project will finance measures to ensure the integration of monitoring.

HTLN Monitoring Reports. We document our findings in reports published in the NPS Natural Resource Report primary audience for these reports are park managers. The Natural Resources Working Group is a voluntary association of natural resource specialists from NGOs and government ministries that work collectively to support conservancies and improve natural resource management in Namibia. Services provided to conservancies by NRWG can be separated into development activities and maintenance activities.

Description. The Succulent Karoo biome is an internationally recognized biodiversity hotspot, and is the world's only arid hotspot. The km 2 biome extends from the south-west through the north-western areas of South Africa and into southern Namibia.

The biome is home to 6 plant species, 40% of which are endemic and (17%) of which are listed in the Red Data Book.

Although well adapted to arid conditions, succulent plants are believed to require a more regular moisture supply than non-succulents to survive in arid areas (Ellenberg,Ihlenfeldt,Von Willert et al., ).They are therefore often found in more favourable microhabitats, such as in the shelter of other plants (Dean et al.,Flores-Torres and Montaña, Cited by: 3.

Two visitor-monitoring methods, video monitoring and counts by human observers, were compared in order to identify and evaluate their respective advantages and disadvantages. The analysis considered user numbers, user type (walkers, dog walkers, bicyclists, and joggers) and group size of visitors.

Remarkable differences were found between the two methods for user type and use by: es related to monitoring and management of visitors in recreation and protected areas. Therefore, we welcome researchers, faculty members, public sector and industry managers, consultants, planners and members of NGO’s dealing with visitor management in recreational and protected areas.
