The 2006 regulation on national park zoning allows for 7 zones along the spectrum of conservation and use. This system will be difficult to manage and must be simplified. Two zones are recommended, for use and conservation. This will make the initial zoning definition and later management easier. Special use zones are to be established through formal agreement and managed collaboratively with the aim of integrating development for local people and conservation for the public interest.
