Durban + 5 review Meeting
9-11 April 2008
Somerset-West, Cape Town, South Africa
The Vth World Parks Congress (WPC) was held in Durban, South Africa, in 2003 and was a key event for the world's protected areas emphasizing benefits beyond boundaries. The Congress itself resulted in a number of lasting outcomes, including the Durban Accord and Action Plan; the CBD Programme of Work on Protected Areas, as well as a number of key publications and other knowledge products.
The WPC called for a small focussed review meeting to be held 5 years after Durban.
