Protected area governance is addressed in this issue, through the release of a key publication the Consortium has been contributing to and the involvement of the Consortium in preparing a Stream for the next World Parks Congress. The soon-to-come General Assembly of the Consortium is also mentioned, with various documents that will be discussed there. We are getting some news from Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Senegal, Iran, The Philippines, Europe, and Nicaragua. A report about the important Latin America ICCA congress is also provided. Our new regional coordinator for North America is offering us an article on reciprocity, natural economy and bio-cultural diversity. And more! much more!
