Session Title: Emerging geographies of protected areas

Session Organisers: Aidan Davison (University of Tasmania) & Benjamin Cooke (RMIT)

Session Abstract
The global protected area conservation estate has changed greatly since the 1992 Convention on Biological Diversity. An array of non-government actors have worked with governments to increase the diversity and extent of protected land and sea tenures. In Australia, the Indigenous protected area estate has recently grown larger than the public estate. This session brings geographical analysis to bear on these changes. Papers from across the discipline and cognate areas could address the following areas of focus (but feel free to suggest more):
•             Nature conservation outcomes
•             Neoliberal conservation strategies
•             The socio-ecology of Indigenous Protected Areas
•             The socio-ecology of Private Protected Areas
•             Protected Areas in the Anthropocene
•             The conservancy sector

Please submit abstracts of 150 words to the conference website (https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts<https://apac01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcdesign.eventsair.com%2F2019-iag%2Fabstracts&data=02%7C01%7C%7C3d02342de19e44a1084308d68b0a3a08%7Cd1323671cdbe4417b4d4bdb24b51316b%7C0%7C0%7C636849273379895005&sdata=h8%2Fe0so%2FoHZWwFigh8wvu%2Bb42CgtrXd0A%2F5rz1k7BnI%3D&reserved=0>).
