At WILD9, the 9th World Wilderness Congress (6-13 November 2009, Merida Mexico) we launched an abridged version of the Handbook in Spanish, as part of WILD’s continued work to expand the global wilderness community. Una Introduccion Alderecho y a las Politicas Internacionales Sobre Areas Silvestres is the first international publicaion on wilderness law and policy in a language other than English.
This book serves two primary purposes. It provides a detailed “how-to” guide for conservation professionals interested in developing new wilderness laws or policies in their countries, and it provides the most current information to practitioners in countries where wilderness laws and policies are already in place, but who are interested in learning from approaches and experiences in other countries. In addition to case studies of wilderness laws and policies written by leading conservationists from 12 countries and one indigenous group (the Confederated Salish and Kootenai), the book also includes a matrix allowing for easy comparison of the different wilderness definitions in use around the world.
