Asian Sacred Natural Sites

Full Product Description

Nature conservation planning tends to be driven by models based on Western norms, but these may not represent the cultural, philosophical and religious contexts of much of Asia. This book provides a new perspective on the topic of sacred natural sites and cultural heritage, by linking and embedding them within local Asian cultures. The chapters focus on the modern significance of sacred natural sites in Asian protected areas with reference, where appropriate, to an Asian Philosophy of Protected Areas. The book contributes to a paradigm-shift in conservation and protected areas in Asia. It provides examples of sacred natural sites from all protected area governance types across 19 different countries in Asia. It covers different IUCN protected area categories and reports on experiences with the implementation of the IUCN-UNESCO Sacred Natural Sites, Guidelines for Protected Area Managers.
In addition to description and analysis of the cultural and traditional significance of sacred natural sites to protected areas management, governance and nature conservation in general, the authors demonstrate the challenges faced by efforts to maintain culture and tradition in the face of strong modernisation across Asia.

Asian Sacred Natural Sites was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in August 2016. The ISBN for Asian Sacred Natural Sites is 9781138936317.
