Are paper parks useful?

At a recent meeting on protected areas in the Caribbean 'paper parks'
came up for discussion. Some considered them worse than useless -
giving a false sense of security and generating a feeling that
action had been taken. Others said they were a useful precursor and
a necessary step in the slow moving progression towards effective
protection. I'd be interested in hearing other people's views,
particularly if you have examples or case studies. Please reply to me
