Abstract: "Broadly speaking, there are three approaches reflected in the conceptualisations and practices of Protected Area (PA) management. These are the government-centred, people-centred/oriented, and joint approaches to PA management. This paper deals with the PA management approach in India with a focus on one of the PAs in the country. It is divided into three parts. First, it deals with the approach and major features of PA management. Secondly, it specifically discusses the existing organizational structure, process and problems of management in case of the Gir PA, the only abode of the Asiatic lion located in western India. Thirdly, it presents an outline of the framework for joint PA management with a focus on the Gir PA."
