Recommendations
1 The policy and legislative frameworks will require additional attention leading to their improvement, adoption and enforcement. While nature reserves have some form of classification according to the level of authority that manages the reserve (National, Provincial, Local) reflecting the level of importance of the reserve, nature reserves should be classified according to their purpose, their management, their use etc.. In this context some more experimentation could be undertaken with the setting up/management of protected areas according to the guidelines of the IUCN Classification system (e.g. IUCN Classification V: Protected Landscapes), as is currently being undertaken in Yunnan Province.
2 Taking into account the above recommendation, institutions at all levels, in particular the lower levels that are in the most urgent need, should be supported, adjusted and strengthened. In view of the ecological diversity of the nature reserves and their management complexity, specific policies, legislation and regulations will be required. While capacities at provincial levels were often impressive in many ways, specific projects should target local administrations in order to enhance their capacities in dealing with nature reserve planning management.
