DescriptionIntegrated conservation and development projects (ICDPs) aim to combine the goals of biological conservation and socio-economic development. In this thesis I explore the historical context of ICDPs, analyze the debate around ICDPs, and put forth recommendations for future ICDPs. I then go on to examine the Community Management of Protected Areas for Conservation (COMPACT), a suite of ICDPs implemented by the Small Grants Programme of the Global Environment Facility. I analyze the COMPACT methodology and approach to understand why COMPACT initiatives are innovative and successful. I use COMPACT projects implemented in the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site as a case study in this analysis. I conclude by highlighting the key aspects of COMPACT's methodology and approach that have enabled it to successfully combine conservation and development goals.
