A Handbook on International Wilderness Law and Policy, published by The WILD Foundation and Fulcrum Publishing, is the first comprehensive guide to wilderness laws and policies around the world. It provides a detailed “how-to” guide for conservation professionals interested in developing new wilderness laws or policies in their countries; and also 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. Included in the book are case studies from 12 countries and one indigenous group as well as a matrix comparing different wilderness definitions around the world.
