The roundtable meeting of stakeholders as mentioned in the case study was held to do the analysis of the ways through which the National Parks can be funded. In order to maintain the National Parks, a lot of funds are required. The funds are required for the maintenance of the parks in a better manner. The funds of US government at present times are not enough to cater to the needs of all the parks in USA. There have been many instances where it was found that the funding was something that has been lacking in USA. The government says that national parks are important valuable assets for the nation. However, this cannot appear on the balance sheet of USA.
As per one of the study, it was found that the government is not spending enough for the national park. It was found that the funding of the park was not done in such a manner that it is required for the maintenance of the parl. It was also observed in the research that the Congress had cut down the funding for NPS by 15 per cent in the past 15 years (David Usborne, 2016). It is therefore important to ensure that unique ways are used to facilitate the process of funding. Another requirement was that the NPS had a backlog of the maintenance of around $12 billion which were overdue. NPS had also been impacted by the cuts to the Land and Water Conservation Fund (Conversation, 2016).
