Effective Design

This framework draws on best practices from experiences around the world and extensive consultation with experts from Canada and other jurisdictions. It also builds on an earlier
WWF-Canada report, Planning for Representative Marine Protected Areas: A Framework for Canada’s Oceans (Day and Roff 2000). As well, the framework reflects guidance from the
World Summit on Sustainable Development, the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, and the World Parks Congress
