Modeling local implementation and regional conservation planning in Fiji:
In a perfect world, conservation planning would be systematic. Decisions on where to set up (and how to manage) reserves would be undertaken considering the natural values of that reserve together with how these values combine with other reserves (complementarity) and how different reserves are connected (connectivity). Individual reserves are selected on the values they contribute to the broader network. A systematic approach like this was applied in planning for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
