Protected Area Management
What is ISPAM?
The International Seminar on Protected Area Management (ISPAM) is a collaborative initiative developed to share ideas and advance protected area management globally. ISPAM aims to bring PA practitioners together from around the world to co-generate knowledge and create a community of practice around protected area management (PAM).
ISPAM is co-run by the US Forest Service International Programs and the University of Montana, each bringing their own professional knowledge to the seminar. Expertise in applying PAM strategies and building capacity around PAM are shared by the Forest Service, while the University of Montana brings institutional knowledge and critical concepts of PAM.
