by Imelda Bacudo, Julia Aglionby, Giacomo Rambaldi, Ma. Purissima Matsuura and Teresita Blastique
Produced as a joint-effort by PAWB and NIPAP, this handbook builds on the experience gained over a period of three years in establishing and managing Integrated Protected Area Sub-Funds (IPAF) in eight protected areas. It deals with procedural matters on the establishment and management of the IPAF within the legal framework and provides valuable insights into the various aspects of resource valuation, answers questions from the field and supplies guidelines for budget preparation according to government prescriptions. The handbook is designed for all those involved in protected area management particularly for members of the Protected Area Management Boards, Protected Area Superintendents and Government Officials who would like to establish functional trust funds in the framework of the NIPAS law.
