Forest conservation in protected areas of Bangladesh

Policy and community development perspectives

Editors: Mohammad Shaheed, Hossain Chowdhury (Ed.)

  • The book covers as many aspects of participatory protected area management as possible
  • This is a success story of implementing conservation policy in Bangladesh. However, it does not only focus on the positive issues, but also highlights the adverse ones. For instance, negative attitude of the community people towards ‘Improved Cooking Stove’ that is generally welcomed worldwide. This is a controversial but interesting finding, which could be of interest for the researchers working in biomass energy
  • A meta-physical model (‘Spider-web model of protected area co-management’) has been developed, which could be followed by the policy makers of countries having similar socio-economic and geo-political context like Bangladesh

About this book

This book dealt with a number of issues under the broad subject matter of protected area focusing on the policy of collaborative management as a means to augment the forest conservation activities and enhance community development in Bangladesh. Studies covered in the book emerged with the success stories of protected area co-management, both in terms of community development and biodiversity conservation. Significant level of development was noticed in the socio-economic conditions of the surrounding communities. Empowerment and improved social dignity of women participants signifies the initiation of co-management approach. The principles of participatory governance were found reasonably well reflected in legal and policy frameworks. Based on the lessons from the studies, a general metaphysical model, namely ‘Spider-web model of protected area co-management’ has been developed that can be potentially applicable in countries where local communities rely heavily on protected areas.
