Over the past decade and a half, Marc has been working with the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas to develop and apply systems for assessing the effectiveness of management of protected areas. The principles and methods developed with IUCN have been adopted by many countries and international conventions and processes. As a consequence assessments have been undertaken in over 10000 protected areas globally. A global review of the results of available assessments presents a mixed picture with just over 20% of sites having "sound" management and 14% of sites showing serious deficiencies.

Confirmation of candidature: Boom and Bust in the Tanami Desert - What are the effects of environmental unpredictability on desert birds?

There have been few studies of the detail of boom and bust population changes involving the birds of Australia's deserts, and they have been of relatively short duration. This study may assist in the understanding of such questions as:

a) To what extent are prior bird assemblages affected by 'booms' following major rainfall events?

b) Do some habitats provide refugia during 'bust' periods following major rainfall events?

c) What mechanisms are involved in 'boom and bust' bird population changes, and do some bird species show little population response to 'boom and bust' conditions?

The permanent availability of artificial water points in the study area, and the occurrence of broad-scale wildfires subsequent to rapid vegetation growth after heavy rain, suggest two additional questions:

d) Which desert bird species have populations which are influenced by the availability of artificial water points, and are they positively or negatively affected?

e) What are the shorter- and longer-term effects of broad-scale fires on bird species populations, and can any effects be related to changes to vegetation structure caused by fire?

Target audience: Open to the public.

The Benanain catchment is located in Indonesian West Timor in NTT province, near the border with Timor Leste.  The Benanain is the largest catchment in NTT and supports approximately 258,000 poor subsistence farmers as well as extensive lowland irrigation. However it is characterized by infertile, erodible soils, flood and drought prone, rugged terrain and is thus easily degraded by poor land management practices. The catchment has come under increasing development pressure over the last 20 years with the massive influx of 98,800 East Timorese refugees settling, clearing and farming. In addition there has been a proliferation of small scale manganese mining activity.
