Protected Areas Management effectiveness assessments measure the extent to which all of the necessary systems and processes are taking place in protected areas, and identify areas for improvement. Over the last decade, a number of initiatives were supported and important products developed. There remains, however, a need for further promotion, strengthened coordination and partnership among Protected Areas Management Effectiveness initiatives as a foundation for Green Listing, and that applies to all protected areas.

Some of the notable highlights include:


GD-PAME is the most comprehensive Global Database (GD) of management effectiveness assessments for protected areas (PAME). It indicates if a protected area documented in the World Database on Protected Areas (WDPA) has been assessed.

The GD-PAME is a searchable database that includes assessments submitted by a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organizations to UNEP-WCMC, and is updated on a monthly basis.
