      North American regional planning is likely to cover a much larger area than the Regional Assemblies of England, but both are equally ‘regional’ in nature. Overview Regions require various land uses; protection of farmland, cities, industrial space, transportation hubs and . It also enables geoheritage conservation to be linked into the application and management of the IUCN Protected Area Management Categories. Significant challenges remain, however, to implement this holistic approach in practice and to set geoconservation on a comparable footing to biodiversity conservation in environmental policies and strategies.

      Why Regional Planning? Regional Planning encompasses even larger area when compared to city planning; Number of cities might be covered when considering a region but rural area remains at the core for which planning is to be with rural areas many lower level towns in addition to the villages witnessing transformation to towns also adds up to area for which regional plans are made.   Major protected areas of North America.

Critical to the plan is the widest possible consultation with stakeholders and the development of objectives that can be agreed and adhered to by all Author: Julie Middleton, Lee Thomas. This handbook, produced by world renowned experts from the World Conservation Union (IUCN), spans the full terrain of protected area management and is the international benchmark for the field.

The book employs dozens of detailed international cases studies, hundreds of concise topical snapshots, maps, tables, illustrations and a colour plate section, as well as evaluation tools, checklists.

Most of North America, to include Mexico, Greenland, and some of the Caribbean, is situated on the North American plate and is thus relatively geologically stable (see Figure ).

Enforcing protected area boundaries is a costly and labour-heavy endeavour.
