Pathak Broome, with contributions from G. Borrini-Feyerabend, C. Eghenter, H. C. Jonas, and G. Reyes, 2016, Tehran, Iran.

This Policy Brief explores the issues of ICCAs and overlapping protected areas, discusses key approaches for appropriately recognising, respecting and supporting overlapped ICCAs, and offers recommendations. It is based on an in-depth report to the ICCA Consortium, Recognising and Respecting ICCAs Overlapped by Protected Areas, which presents information and analysis from a three-and-a-half year process of consultation and discussion within the ICCA Consortium and at international meetings of the IUCN and Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
