    One of the most vexing challenges in biodiversity conservation in developing countries is reconciling land tenure and land use issues that emerge when previously unprotected or unregulated ecosystems are placed under state control as part of a national protected areas system.

    Prerequisite for sustainable development of the Russian Federation is the creation and development of a system of protected areas. Main mechanism that creates optimal conditions for the fulfilment of functions of the PA is planning. At the present time we have to admit that there are problems that prevent from appropriate functioning of protected areas and solving the tasks assigned to them.

    The Convention on Biological Diversity
    (CBD) defines biodiversity as the variability among living
    organisms from all sources including, inter alia,
    terrestrial, marine and other aquatic ecosystems and the
    ecological complexes of which they are part; this includes
    diversity within species, between species, and of
    ecosystems. The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment and TEEB
    (The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity) demonstrated

    This paper presents a somewhat novel
    approach to explore the economic contribution of ecosystems.
    It develops linked models to capture connections between
    resource stocks and flows and the resulting microeconomic
    and macroeconomic impacts. A bioeconomic model is developed
    that is imbedded into a computable general equilibrium (CGE)
    model. Incorporating imperfect regulation, the bioeconomic
    model characterizes optimal policies, while the CGE model

    Nicaragua

    This study, policy and investment
    priorities to reduce environmental degradation of the Lake
    Nicaragua watershed, has assessed the sources and the
    magnitude of the pressures that threaten Lake Cocibolca. It
    was accomplished by applying a hydrological and land use
    model to the lake's watershed and by conducting
    additional estimates of nutrients generated from wastewater
    sources and tilapia farming. The study has confirmed that

    Kenya

    This report presents a case study on
    groundwater governance in Kenya. The objectives of the study
    were to: (a) describe groundwater resource and socioeconomic
    settings for four selected aquifers; (b) describe governance
    arrangements for groundwater management in Kenya; and (c)
    identify the relevance of these arrangements for planning
    and implementing climate change mitigation measures. The
    report provides a comprehensive strategy to develop

    Sustainable forest management (SFM)
    certification emerged in the 1980s and 1990s as a mechanism
    to promote responsible forest use and as an alternative to
    boycotts of forest products amid growing concerns about
    forest degradation and destruction. Since then, forest
    certification has evolved into a multifaceted market-based
    mechanism to promote compliance with sets of ecological,
    social, and economic criteria to enhance sustainability.

    América Latina y el Caribe

    The Latin America and Caribbean Region
    has been at the forefront of global biodiversity
    conservation, dedicating 20 percent of its land to protected
    areas compared to 13 percent in the rest of the developing
    world. This progress has stretched available budgets for
    conservation with estimates indicating that a twofold
    increase would be necessary to achieve optimal management of
    existing protected areas based on 2008 data. Recognizing the

    The Petroleum Governance Initiative
    (PGI) encompasses three general themes, or pillars, that
    address issues issues of transparency and economic
    responsibility, environmental sustainability and responsible
    community development. Of particular interest here is the
    second pillar, environmental sustainability; the PGI is
    currently involved in four main activities surrounding this
    theme: 1) assessing environmental governance and management
