The function of establishing national parks is to protect the authenticity and integrity of the ecosystem. However, ecosystem integrity and the authenticity face not only overlapping protection, but also the management division and fragmentation problems due to administrative division. Qianjiangyuan National Park pilot is a region spanning Zhejiang, Anhui, and Jiangxi provinces. There are three common problems in the process of cross-border management of Qianjiangyuan National Park: delineation of the collaborative governance spatial boundary, discrepancy of the policy of ecological conservation and its implementation, and contradiction between the living reliance on natural resources and the goal of ecological protection. Learning from the experience of French regional parks governance, this paper puts forward that the Qianjiangyuan National Park must form a government-led (represented by the park management agency), a multi-subject cooperative governance framework involving enterprises, community residents and non-governmental organizations. At last, in view of the above three problems, it is proposed to realize the unified protection across administrative barriers through the third-party participation, the unification of protection standards through the community agreement protection, and the sustainability of protection and development through the national park product brand value-added system.

Key words: Qianjiangyuan, national park, cross-border governance system, governance model, governance mechanism
