From pre-hispanic to future conservation alternatives: lessons from Mexico. (1/2885)

In this paper, we review some past and present trends in biodiversity conservation in Mexico and explore possible explanations of why, in spite of this long history of depredation and ineffective conservation policies, the ecosystems have been able to cope with and retain most of their biological components. We suggest a hypothesis based on the persistence of a complex mosaic of past and present traditional land uses as a possible explanation for this resilience. We propose an agenda for the scope of future conservation research and policy, particularly the need to take the socioeconomic context of environmental degradation into account. We put forth a series of questions that we think need to be investigated if the conservation research community is to participate in developing solutions for the future welfare of the human species and of biodiversity on earth.  (+info)

Gardenification of tropical conserved wildlands: multitasking, multicropping, and multiusers. (2/2885)

Tropical wildlands and their biodiversity will survive in perpetuity only through their integration into human society. One protocol for integration is to explicitly recognize conserved tropical wildlands as wildland gardens. A major way to facilitate the generation of goods and services by a wildland garden is to generate a public-domain Yellow Pages for its organisms. Such a Yellow Pages is part and parcel of high-quality search-and-delivery from wildland gardens. And, as they and their organisms become better understood, they become higher quality biodiversity storage devices than are large freezers. One obstacle to wildland garden survival is that specific goods and services, such as biodiversity prospecting, lack development protocols that automatically shunt the profits back to the source. Other obstacles are that environmental services contracts have the unappealing trait of asking for the payment of environmental credit card bills and implying delegation of centralized governmental authority to decentralized social structures. Many of the potential conflicts associated with wildland gardens may be reduced by recognizing two sets of social rules for perpetuating biodiversity and ecosystems, one set for the wildland garden and one set for the agroscape. In the former, maintaining wildland biodiversity and ecosystem survival in perpetuity through minimally damaging use is paramount, while in the agroscape, wild biodiversity and ecosystems are tools for a healthy and productive agroecosystem, and the loss of much of the original is acceptable.  (+info)

Exposure to airborne microorganisms and volatile organic compounds in different types of waste handling. (3/2885)

Occupational exposure of workers to airborne microorganisms and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in different types of waste treatment situations was examined during summer time. Microorganisms were collected as stationary samples using a six-stage Andersen impactor, while for VOCs both personal and stationary sampling was conducted. The exposure at the waste handling facility was considerably greater than at landfill sites or in waste collection. The concentrations of viable fungi were maximally 10(5) cfu/m3, and the concentrations of both total culturable bacteria and Gram-negative bacteria exceeded the proposed occupational exposure limit values (OELV), being 10(4) and 10(3) cfu/m3, respectively. Exposure to VOCs in the waste handling facility was three times higher than at the landfill sites, being at highest 3000 microg/m3, considered to be the limit for discomfort. The use of personal protective equipment at work, thorough hand washing and changing clothes after the work shift are strongly recommended in the waste handling facility and the landfill sites.  (+info)

Global assessment of deforestation related to tobacco farming. (4/2885)

OBJECTIVES: To assess the global amount of forest and woodland consumed annually for curing tobacco between 1990 and 1995; to estimate tobacco's share in total deforestation; to rank tobacco-growing countries by the degree of impact of tobacco deforestation; and to indicate environmental criticality emerging from tobacco's impact on forest resources. DESIGN: Production of country-specific estimates of forests/woodlands needed and depleted on the basis of growing stock/increment of woody biomass involved and wood consumption of tobacco. Comparison of results with secondary statistics on forest cover, deforestation, and population development. RESULTS: An estimated 200,000 ha of forests/woodlands are removed by tobacco farming each year. Deforestation mainly occurs in the developing world, amounting to 1.7% of global net losses of forest cover or 4.6% of total national deforestation. Environmental criticality exists or is emerging in 35 countries with an estimated serious, high, and medium degree of tobacco-related deforestation, mainly in southern Africa, middle east, south, and east Asia, South America, and the Caribbean. CONCLUSION: The hypothesis that deforestation from tobacco production does not have a significant negative effect has to be challenged. For empirical validation, the globally significant pattern of estimated tobacco-related environmental damage ought to be included in international research agendas on global environmental change, to become an integral and rational part of tobacco control policy.  (+info)

Role of reproductive technologies and genetic resource banks in animal conservation. (5/2885)

In combination with modem reproductive technologies, there is potential to use frozen and stored germplasm (genetic resource banks) to support conservation measures for the maintenance of genetic diversity in threatened species. However, turning this idea into reality is a complex process, requiring interdisciplinary collaboration and clearly defined goals. As the number of species deserving the attention of conservation scientists is overwhelmingly large, yet detailed knowledge of reproductive physiology is restricted to relatively few of them, choosing which species to conserve is one of the most difficult issues to be tackled. Besides the direct application of technologically advanced reproductive procedures, modern approaches to non-invasive endocrine monitoring play an important role in optimizing the success of natural breeding programmes. Through the analysis of urine and faecal samples, this type of technology provides invaluable management information about the reproductive status of diverse species. For example, it is possible to diagnose pregnancy and monitor oestrous cycles in elephants and rhinos without causing stress through restraint for sample collection. In this review, we identify the potential contribution of reproductive biology and genetic resource banks to animal conservation, but also highlight the complexity of issues determining the extent to which this potential can be achieved.  (+info)

Late patency of recycled internal mammary artery: verification by Doppler echocardiography and coronary angiography. (6/2885)

We report the case of a 57-year-old man who had presented with exertional angina early in 1997 and had subsequently undergone myocardial revascularization with the use of both internal mammary arteries. Two months after surgery, the patient was readmitted to the hospital with unstable angina. Coronary angiography revealed a 90% occlusion of the left internal mammary artery anastomosis, which was attached to the left anterior descending coronary artery. At reoperation, the left internal mammary artery was detached from the left anterior descending coronary artery, probed and injected with papaverine, checked for patency, and regrafted to the same coronary artery. Recycling of the left internal mammary artery was facilitated by the harvesting and routing technique that had been used during the previous operation. At the patient's 1-year follow-up visit, both Doppler echocardiography and coronary angiography showed patency of the recycled graft. We conclude that recycling of the left internal mammary artery is a safe and effective option in selected patients who require reoperation after myocardial revascularization.  (+info)

Robustness of reserve selection procedures under temporal species turnover. (7/2885)

Complementarity-based algorithms for the selection of reserve networks emphasize the need to represent biodiversity features efficiently, but this may not be sufficient to maintain those features in the long term. Here, we use data from the Common Birds Census in Britain as an exemplar data set to determine guidelines for the selection of reserve networks which are more robust to temporal turnover in features. The extinction patterns found over the 1981-1991 interval suggest that two such guidelines are to represent species in the best sites where they occur (higher local abundance) and to give priority to the rarer species. We tested five reserve selection strategies, one which finds the minimum representation set and others which incorporate the first or both guidelines proposed. Strategies were tested in terms of their efficiency (inversely related to the total area selected) and effectiveness (inversely related to the percentage of species lost) using data on eight pairs of ten-year intervals. The minimum set strategy was always the most efficient, but suffered higher species loss than the others, suggesting that there is a trade-off between efficiency and effectiveness. A desirable compromise can be achieved by embedding the concerns about the long-term maintenance of the biodiversity features of interest in the complementarity-based algorithms.  (+info)

Subcutaneous atypical mycobacteriosis in captive tiger quolls (Dasyurus maculatus). (8/2885)

From July 1989 to October 1998, 9/37 (24%) adult captive tiger quolls (Dasyurus maculatus) were diagnosed with atypical mycobacterial infection involving the subcutis and skin. Females were more often affected than males (seven females, two males). Grossly, lesions presented as focal thickenings, plaques, and abscesses within the subcutis, often with fistulous tracts. The subcutis and skin overlying cervical and thoracic regions were the primary sites of infection. Cytology of subcutaneous impression smears from all nine affected tiger quolls revealed pyogranulomatous inflammation admixed with several acid-fast bacilli. Histologically, all tiger quolls had nodular to diffuse pyogranulomatous panniculitis and cellulitis. Small numbers of acid-fast bacilli were noted histologically in 7/9 (78%) animals. Skin cultures from seven tiger quolls were positive for one or more different Runyon group IV mycobacteria. The disease described in these tiger quolls is similar to subcutaneous atypical mycobacteriosis of humans and domestic animals.  (+info)

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Habitat Conservation Plans Section 10 of the Endangered Species Act What is a Habitat Conservation Plan and Incidental Take Permit? An incidental take permit is required when non-Federal activities will result in "take" of threatened or endangered wildlife. A habitat conservation plan (HCP) must accompany an application for an incidental take permit. The purpose of the habitat conservation planning process associated with the permit is to ensure there is adequate minimizing and mitigating of the effects of the authorized incidental take. The purpose of the incidental take permit is to authorize the incidental take of a listed species, not to authorize the activities that result in take. What is take? "Take" is defined in the Endangered Species Act (ESA) as harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect any threatened or endangered species. Harm may include significant habitat modification where it actually kills or injures a listed species ...
The Natural Resource Protection and Child Health Indicators, 2012 Release, are produced in support of the U.S. Millennium Challenge Corporation as selection criteria for funding eligibility. These indicators are successors to the Natural Resource Management Index (NRMI), which was produced from 2006 to 2011 and was based on the same underlying data. Like the NRMI, the Natural Resource Protection Indicator (NRPI) and Child Health Indicator (CHI) are based on proximity-to-target scores ranging from 0 to 100 (at target). The NRPI covers 235 countries and is calculated based on the weighted average percentage of biomes under protected status. The CHI is a composite index for 175 countries derived from the average of three proximity-to-target scores for access to improved sanitation, access to improved water, and child mortality. The 2012 release includes a consistent time series of NRPIs and CHIs for 2006 to 2012 ...

By Zeppel, Heather ABSTRACT: Marine wildlife tours can provide a range of education and conservation benefits for visitors, including emotional (i.e., affective) responses and learning (i.e., cognition). Interpretive programs cover the biology, ecology, and behavior of marine species; best practice guidelines; and human threats to marine areas. The author reviews the education and conservation benefits of 18 marine wildlife experiences with dolphins, whales, and marine turtles by using (a) M. Oramss (1999) framework of indicators such as behavior or lifestyle changes in visitors and (b) 3 environmental indicators of conservation. Results of this meta-analysis showed that visitor learning and emotional empathy during mediated encounters with marine wildlife contributed to on-site behavior changes and some longer term intentions to engage in marine conservation actions. The author presents an experience-learning-action model to guide research and develop free-choice visitor learning. KEYWORDS: ...

Conventional resource management pervades the practice of ecosystem governance and the performance of alternative models is inconsistent, particularly in developing country contexts. I argue for a perspective that focuses on enabling underlying principles of governance to improve a range of governance regimes. This thesis prioritises three principles of adaptive governance, namely, inclusive decision-making, diversity of ecological knowledge, and integration of complexity thinking. It examines how these are enabled or disabled in practice, and the implications for the legitimacy and effectiveness of management strategies, including marine protected areas, expected to secure resilience of desirable ecological configurations. An institutional analysis with a concern for power relations, socio-cultural practice, and historical social geographies is employed. Empirical data were collected from two marine social-ecological systems in Kenya, using a range of qualitative techniques. Mombasa Marine ...

The first and second Federal Plans for Sustainable Development devote special attention to biodiversity[23]. The first Federal Plan for Sustainable Development 2000-2004 mentions several strategies in the field of the conservation and the sustainable use of biodiversity and in the field of biosecurity. It refers also to national and international integration and coordination measures, to sensibilisation and to the need for scientific knowledge. This plan was the first strategic document endorsed by the federal government that referred to a biodiversity strategy and a national action plan. The "Second Federal Plan for Sustainable Development 2004-2008" (FPSD2) was adopted by the Federal Council of Ministers on 24 September 2004. Action 18 is devoted to biodiversity and actions 19 and 20 deal with forests and marine waters.. Action 18 foresees the integration of biodiversity issues into four key sectors (transport, the economy, development cooperation and research). For each sector, the Federal ...

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the NOAA Fisheries are actively working to engage conservation partners and the public in the search for improved and innovative ways to conserve and protect imperiled species, even before they are listed under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).. The agencies are committed to strengthening the delivery of voluntary conservation tools, such as Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances (CCAA), by making it easier to work together on conservation efforts, thus are soliciting public review and comment on whether to revise the existing CCAA policy and accompanying regulations.. Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances are designed to provide an incentive to landowners to implement specific conservation measures for declining species that are not currently listed under the ESA. To participate in a CCAA, non-federal property owners can voluntarily implement specific conservation measures that reduce or eliminate threats on their land to species ...
Sustainable Development Goal 14 aims "to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development."[76] Effective strategies to mitigate adverse effects of increased ocean acidification are needed to advance the sustainable use of oceans. As areas of protected marine biodiversity expand, there has been an increase in ocean science funding, essential for preserving marine resources.[77] The deterioration of coastal waters has become a global occurrence, due to pollution and coastal eutrophication (overflow of nutrients in water), where similar contributing factors to climate change can affect oceans and negatively impact marine biodiversity. "Without concerted efforts, coastal eutrophication is expected to increase in 20 per cent of large marine ecosystems by 2050."[78] The Preparatory Meeting to the UN Ocean Conference convened in New York, US, in February 2017, to discuss the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14. International law, as reflected ...
Sustainable management of natural resources requires an in-depth understanding of the interplay between social and ecological change. Linked social-ecological systems (SES) have been described as complex adaptive systems (CAS), which mean that they are irreducible, exhibit nonlinear dynamics, have interactions across scales and are uncertain and unpredictable. These propositions have however rarely been tested empirically, in part due to a lack of methodological approaches and suitable datasets. In this thesis, I address this methodological and empirical gap in a study of long-term change of Baltic Sea fisheries. In Paper I, we develop the concept of fishing style through integrating multivariate statistical analysis and in-depth interviews. We thereby identify an intermediate level of detail for analyzing social-ecological dynamics, embracing the case specific and context dependent approaches of the social sciences with the generalizable and quantifiable approaches from the natural sciences. In ...

The survey will help inform better management of our iconic species within the Noosa Biosphere Reserve. Dr Celine Frere from the Detection Dogs for Conservation research program says the survey is an important step towards filling in knowledge gaps of local koala distribution. "These surveys are critical and extend our knowledge about koala distribution across the Noosa Biosphere Reserve." "To protect their habitat, we must know where they are, how connected populations are and how healthy they are. "These surveys provide us with the foundation - where are koalas? "I always say that we cannot protect what we dont understand," said Dr Frere. Out of the sites surveyed, 103 contained koala scats on both private freehold and public land. A total of 128 scats were deemed fresh enough to be collected for further genetic analysis. "These scats will provide us with a broad scale knowledge about koala genetic diversity and connectivity across the Noosa Shire." The research project funded by Noosa ...

When the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), were adopted in September 2015 by all Member States of the United Nations, Iraq was busy fighting terrorist groups and handling the repercussions of the falling global crude oil prices. Nevertheless, Iraqis never stopped aspiring to a better future.. This first Voluntary National Review (VNR) report to the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) testifies to this commitment. It showcases the experience of a strong nation which chose life and development and relied on its people despite the hardships they went through; which never stopped aspiring to sustainable development even during war and its noise; which shows determination and ambition while acknowledging that exceptional efforts are required to achieve the needed balance between the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development, sustain peace and protect the rights of all people and future generations, ensuring that ...
New planning options are now available for TURA facilities that have completed a toxics use reduction (TUR) plan and two plan updates. Beginning with plans due July 1, 2008, these facilities now have the option to develop either a resource conservation plan (for alternating planning cycles) or to implement an environmental management system (EMS) in lieu of a TUR plan, giving facilities the opportunity to integrate their toxics planning efforts into a comprehensive EMS. A facility choosing to complete a resource conservation plan must select at least one "natural asset" as the focus of the plan and apply the TUR planning methods and source reduction approach on this asset. After developing a resource conservation plan, a facility must return to TUR planning for the following planning cycle two years later. Asset areas that can be included in a resource conservation plan include: -Water use -Energy use (including reducing greenhouse gas emissions and shifting to renewable energy sources) -Other ...
7 June 2017 , Ask 12 people what mitigation banking is, and youll probably get 12 different answers - few if any of which would identify it as a key segment of the $25-billion ecological restoration economy that funnels money into the restoration of streams, wetlands and habitats - while supporting over 200,000 jobs.. "Mitigation banking is confusing," says Sara Johnson, an attorney at Hirschler Fleischer law firm. "Your name is your biggest external communication and you dont want to immediately explain a technical concept when advocating on Capitol Hill.". Don Ross, the founder of a restoration company in Florida called EarthBalance agrees, saying it isnt easy to begin a presentation by saying, "were not really a bank.". In an effort to encourage engagement with stakeholders and ultimately raise the profile of mitigation banking, several practitioners decided to give the industrys most prominent organization a makeover. In early March, the National Mitigation Banking Association ...

Ecological principles must govern sustainability, yet sustainability science is largely concerned with social-environmental interactions and barely considers physical limits on resource use. Whether it is possible to overcome such limits can be contested, but the issues raised by a macroecological perspective should be a fundamental part of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).

2. Emerging approaches to community-based agrobiodiversity conservation. Dr Castillo led the discussion summarizing the emerging approaches to community-based agrobio-diversity conservation. According to her, community-based approaches to everything have become fashionable. These include: health programmes, health insurance, agrarian reform, monitoring systems, minimum basic needs, information systems, fishery, disease control in livestock, coastal resource management, watershed management and other forms of natural resource management. While these features will most likely characterize countryside development in the years to come, natural resource management will be most interesting.. Community-based resource management (CBRM) involves the development of people s institutions and technologies for the collective management of natural resources at the local level so that sustainable benefits could be continuously derived from them.

The Human Dimensions Lab in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources at Purdue University is led by Dr. Zhao Ma. Collectively, our Human Dimensions Lab members focus on one overarching research question: How do individuals and organizations make natural resource decisions in the context of social-ecological change?. We consider natural resource decisions broadly to include management, utilization, conservation, preservation, as well as no action. We examine natural resource decision making processes at multiple scales in multiple contexts, with a particular focus on how individuals and organizations make natural resource decisions in response to various ecological, climatic, social, economic, political, and cultural changes and how various natural resource decisions subsequently impact individuals, households, communities, organizations, and landscapes.. Our lab works on a variety of natural resource topics, and more recently we have focused on invasive plant management, small-scale ...

The lessons and innovations presented during the LR were well received by the different projects. As part of the peer learning, each project identified particular challenges and received advice from others on how to address these challenges: BIRDP received guidance especially from SUSTAIN on how to strengthen adoption and uptake by other communities, and on how to strengthen inter-state coordination from WSRMP. SUSTAIN drew lessons on networking as a vehicle for adoption of their "improved farming practices" and BIRDP provided inputs on strengthening the integration of crop and livestock farming systems, and WSRMP on securing stock routes. WSRMP, which is close to completion, received advice on how to institutionalize the good practices developed during its exit strategy - including linking up with the new Livestock Resilience and Marketing Programme. The Programme learned from all other projects and aims at incorporating their good practices. Each project developed an Action Plan to integrate ...

The ICR did not provide adequate information required to rate the efficacy and outcome of the project. This was an unusually complex and difficult project to evaluate, all the more reason for ICR to be as clear as possible. It did not explain the reasons why many activities within sub components were not carried out, whether due to lack of counterpart funding, and/or a result of poor project management. Further, to what degree this impacted negatively on the policies and laws (which these sub components had been designed to influence) adopted, could not be determined. No substantive issues were covered in discussion of MTR apart from the resolution of weak accounting practices. No discussion of how the Bank attempted to resolve the difficult situations that arose, nor Bank response to the number of activities that were not carried out. Slight inconsistencies also exist in the presentation of project costs and financing. Finally the ICR should also mention if comments have been sought from ...

2) Species diversity: The level at which "population" is to be defined fully depends on the screening criteria used by a country. For example, in the process of obtaining a special status, the conservation status of species can be assessed within the boundaries of a country (for legal protection), or can be assessed globally (IUCN Red Lists). Similarly, the scale at which ecosystems are defined depends on the definition of criteria in a country. Appendix 2. THE SCREENING CRITERIA This is a suggested outline of a set of screening criteria, to be elaborated on country level. It only deals with biodiversity criteria and thus is an add-on to already existing screening criteria. Category A: Environmental impact assessment mandatory:. Only in the case criteria can be based on formal legal backing, such as:. · National legislation, for example in case of impact on protected species and protected areas; · International conventions such as CITES, the Convention on Biological Diversity, Ramsar ...

4. In 1990, FAOs Council recommended the preparation of a comprehensive programme for the sustainable management of AnGR at the global level. A meeting of experts in 1992, and subsequent sessions of FAOs governing bodies, provided the impetus to initiate the development of the Global Strategy for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources (Global Strategy) in 1993. The signing of UNCED Agenda 21 and the ratification of the Convention on Biological Diversity further encouraged the development and design of the Global Strategy. In 1995, the FAO Committee on Agriculture reviewed the early development process and the Council supported the Strategy, accepting the need to involve the broad spectrum of stakeholders and the need for additional funds from extra-budgetary sources to ensure its successful further development and implementation. 5. Within FAO, the mandate of the Commission on Plant Genetic Resources was broadened in 1995, by including AnGR. In 1996, the importance of AnGR and the ...

In the face of credible scientific evidence, developed countries continued to prevent progress on mitigating climate change, he continued. It was a known fact that factory and automobile emissions harmed the environment, and that major large-scale earth-moving activities harmed ecosystems. It was high time to give genuine meaning to sustainable development by investing in renewable energy, ecotourism, oceanic resource management and the transfer of new forms of eco-friendly technology. It was also time to invest in the "blue economy" - the sustainable use of ocean resources, he said, pointing out that Pacific small island developing States had taken the lead in that regard. Asking other regions to support the long-term management of ocean resources, he said partnerships to develop fishing and on-shore facilities in small island States while increasing their share of the benefits derived from such resources was not only fair, but also necessary. There was also a need to make the renewable-energy ...
The purpose of this paper is first, to describe the role of market places in a Swedish context, second, to investigate how could market places catalyze sustainable development in a city located in a Swedish context, and third to analyze which are the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats involved, that could facilitate or obstruct the influence of market places in the process of sustainable development in the context of a city in the Swedish context.. As some municipalities already started to do in the European context, market halls can be restored or some new ones can be built as vibrant centres of activity, which would complement the city centre and along with other facilities become one of the hot-spots on a citys or towns map as scholars point out. Constantly reinventing themselves, market places still keep some of their initial features that generated sustainable design through history. Nowadays, apart from market places for food, new types of markets appear on the niche, but ...
A new study of land use in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso shows that deforestation rates decreased significantly from 2006 to 2010 even as agricultural production in the region reached an all-time high. The study found that growers in Mato Grosso, where more than a third of forest loss in the Brazilian Amazon occurred in the 1980s, have increasingly used previously cleared pasture land. Using satellite data and government statistics on deforestation and production, researchers from Columbia University calculated that 26 percent of the increase in soy production within Mato Grosso from 2001 to 2005 was the result of cropland expansion into forested areas, accounting for 10 percent of total deforestation; during the second half of the decade, however, soy expansion accounted for just 2 percent of total deforestation. According to the study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, this shift coincided with a drop in commodity markets, as well as a series of ...

Despite the presence of scores of heads of state, Rio+20, as the summit is known, was expected to produce the weakest imaginable commitment to greening the global economy - The Economist June 2012. Not the most optimistic of starts to the third global summit on sustainable development…. Why the doom and gloom? As followers of the sustainable development agenda will know, skepticism and fatigue have plagued these international negotiation processes for many years. Whilst progress has been demonstrated on many fronts since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the meetings themselves can be reduced to endless semantic debate on terminology and tit-for-tat fidgeting - producing weak final documents.. Rio+20 was no exception ...
Contrary to what you all may be thinking based on the content of my posts, I am actually doing some work here. Upon arriving in Delhi in early December, I showed up on the doorstep of my affiliation here in India, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), a non-profit organization tackling a variety of environmental policy and research issues including renewable energy, sustainable development, natural resource management and climate change issues. I am now working with TERIs Center for Global Environment Research on two of their ongoing adaptation to climate change projects. In one, a study of coastal vulnerably to climate change in one of Indias southern states, I will be working to identify indicators through which to assess the vulnerability of various ecosystem services to climate change-induced changes in sea level and water salinity. In the other, I will be looking at the use of stakeholder involvement in the identification of agricultural adaptation measures to changing water resource ...
The relentless exploitation and unsustainable use of wildlife, whether for food, medicine or other uses, is a key concern for conservationists worldwide. Indeed, wildlife conservation and sustainable use have recently become centrepieces in conservation and development research.
The mountainous areas of the South Caucasus have a wide variety of climate zones, ranging from cold moderate alpine peaks to temperate, humid and arid landscapes.6 The variation in climate zones gives the region its unique and diverse biodiversity, including many rare and endemic species (CEPF 2003). Caucasus region has been recognized as holding an important reservoir of biodiversity, and is indeed considered a globally significant biodiversity hotspot based on the richness of species, and level of endemism, recorded. As part of the Caucasus-Anatolian-Hyrcanian Temperate Forest, Armenias forests are recognized as a global conservation priority under WWFs Global 200 Ecoregions (Ulande...

WMR has learned from a senior Democratic congressional source that the Bush family, most notably former President George H. W. Bush, is reaping windfall profits from the transfer of title of public federal and state lands to private hands. The elder Bush, according to our sources, has a vested financial interest in land title companies that specialize in the transfer of public lands to private interests.. The revelations represent the first evidence that the elder Bush has benefited from the transfer of public lands to private hands in a giant scheme to defraud federal and state governments, as well as the American taxpayers and Native Americans.. ...

The natural environment underpins human well-being in diverse and complex ways, providing both material and non-material benefits. Effective conservation requires context-specific understandings of human interactions with, and conceptions of, nature. A focus on how cultural values and norms frame relationships with the natural world can enhance conservation efforts, and can prevent conservation actions undermining local culture and values, providing opportunities to reinforce them instead. Conservation, including the conceptualization and management of protected areas, has the potential to support or undermine these culture-nature relationships. A cultural values approach seeks to identify, understand and integrate considerations of cultural values into the design and implementation of conservation initiatives. Such approaches can realize diverse benefits, including maintaining and enhancing local culture (as a contribution to human well-being), deepening links between communities and ...

Summary: This paper presents an overview of the distinctive features of communal tenure in different community-based land and natural resource management systems. Communal tenure refers to situations where groups, communities, or one or more villages have well defined, exclusive rights to jointly own and/or manage particular areas of natural resources such as land, forest and water. These are often referred to as common pool resources: many rural communities are dependent on these resources for their livelihood. In communal tenure, both the boundaries of the resource owned in common and group membership are clearly defined. These are necessary conditions to exclude outsiders and to secure the rights of group members so that these rights cannot be taken away or changed unilaterally. Two models of communal tenure are presented in the paper; these models differ in terms of the function of the state, the length of tenure and the characteristics of the resource system concerned. In the first model, ...
Tracing the evolutionary history of wildlife could improve global habitat conservation, a major Cardiff University study has found. Researchers in the School of Biosciences analysed the African bushbuck -- a common species which lives in most sub-Saharan habitat types -- to test whether DNA similarity between populations living in different habitats can reveal the similarity of those ecoregions now and in the past.

It was only a matter of time before Gov. Tom Corbett lifted former Gov. Ed Rendells moratorium on further drilling beneath state forests and parks. He did so this week, anticipating that state drilling leases would generate $75 million for the next state budget.. Contracts to which drillers would have to agree are protective of public property. For example, drillers may access the gas beneath public lands only from adjacent properties, via horizontal rather than vertical drilling. That means that the surface areas of state lands wont be disturbed.. That does not guarantee that drilling will not produce long-term, cumulative impacts on or around the public lands, since the long-term environmental consequences arent fully known. And the industrial processes on lands near the public lands could have ancillary impacts on roads, air and water. But the state recognizes the environmental sensitivity in this case by requiring drillers to meet the stringent contract standards.. Testimony during a ...

We live in a world that faces several social and environmental problems and achieving sustainable development in contexts where it is necessary to alleviate poverty without eroding the capacity of the ecosystems to support future generations is challenging. Therefore, fostering sustainable development requires enabling both society and environment to cope with disturbances, adapt to and shape change (resilience).. Literature suggests that adaptive co-management practices are appropriate for building resilience and fostering sustainable development. Additionally, studies have highlighted the role of bridging organizations in coordinating and facilitating adaptive co-management. However, adaptive co-management has not been studied in poverty contexts.. This thesis aims to understand what the main tasks of bridging organizations are, and how they facilitate and stimulate adaptive co-management in poverty contexts and their role in nurturing sustainability.. The Environmental Monitors Programme of ...
Understanding population dynamics is essential as societies around the world strive to achieve the ambitious and holistic Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Taking a human-rights based approach - seeing the individual, their needs and potential - beyond the mere numbers of population trends is a fundamental part of this process. Long before the SDGs were adopted - and in many ways paving the way for them - this was the trailblazing approach taken by the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD), held in Cairo back in 1994. Its bold 20-year Programme of Action set ambitious goals for the empowerment of individuals to exercise their rights to access to health care services, including sexual and reproductive health care (as addressed in SDG 3), education across the life course (SDG 4), gender equality (SDG 5), decent work (SDG 8), social protection (SDG 1) and equality and social inclusion (SDG 10). It set a vision for everyone to grow, learn, work and live in an environment ...

In 2016, the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) had to meet three times to adopt tuna conservation measures for a single year. So the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) came to the IATTC annual meeting last week uncertain that agreement on measures to conserve tropical tuna in Eastern Pacific Ocean fisheries would be possible.. But this year, member nations negotiated with renewed urgency. They arrived at last weeks IATTC meeting just as this years total catch limit for FAD fishing on yellowfin and bigeye tuna was being reached. The implication was that many fleets would be forced to stop fishing for approximately five months - a situation that would have significant socioeconomic impact on many fleets fishing in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO), as well as on the canners that depend on their supply.. Within this context, members were motivated to action. The result was the adoption of a solid set of tropical tuna conservation measures for 2018-2020.. ...

The governors of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming have appointed a 15-member panel to review a plan that outlines how grizzly bears and their habitat would be managed within the Yellowstone Ecosystem when the bears are taken off the federally protected list of threatened species.. We are working on the tasks that need to be completed to achieve recovery for grizzly bears in the Yellowstone Ecosystem, said Patrick Graham, director of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. Before the delisting of the Yellowstone grizzly bear population can occur, the states of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming and the federal land management agencies must agree to a plan that will ensure that the bears and their habitat are carefully managed and monitored once the Endangered Species Act no longer applies.. The plan under review is the draft Conservation Strategy for grizzly bears in the Yellowstone Ecosystem. Drafted by the Yellowstone Ecosystem Subcommittee of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee, the Conservation Strategy ...
The establishment of no-take marine protected areas (MPAs) on coral reefs is a common management strategy for conserving the diversity, abundance, and biomass of reef organisms. Generally, well-managed and enforced MPAs can increase or maintain the diversity and function of the enclosed coral reef, with some of the benefits extending to adjacent non-protected reefs. A fundamental question in coral reef conservation is whether these benefits arise within small MPAs (|1 km2), because larval input of reef organisms is largely decoupled from local adult reproduction. We examined the structure of fish assemblages, composition of fish feeding groups, benthic cover, and key ecosystem processes (grazing, macroalgal browsing, and coral replenishment) in three small (0.5-0.8 km2) no-take MPAs and adjacent areas where fisheries are allowed (non-MPAs) on coral reefs in Fiji. The MPAs exhibited greater species richness, density, and biomass of fishes than non-MPAs. Furthermore, MPAs contained a greater abundance and
