SETTING NEW STANDARDS FOR CONSERVATION: DISPLACEMENT REDEFINED Displacement of local people has been one of the most contentious negative impacts of protected areas. The World Bank was one of the first agencies to address this issue, developing a policy on involuntary resettlement in 1980. Michael Cernea, architect of the World Bank resettlement policy describes, in articles published recently in the Journal of Social Change and IUCN's Policy Matters, how the mounting criticism of forced, physical relocation from protected areas brought about a slight "tactical shift" in the establishment of conservation areas whereby a strategy of restrictions on local access to, and use of, resources within the park was employed in place of geographic displacement. While physical displacement brought with it (at least theoretically) an obligation to compensate and resettle those affected, restricting access to resources has not been accompanied by any counter measures to address the subsequent local impoverishment that this strategy has caused.

Collective Action in Agrobiodiversity Management: Gendered Rules of Reputation, Trust and Reciprocity in Kerala, India by webadmin — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:52 AM
The International Food Policy Research Institute brown bag seminar: Collective action aims at the joint management of common pool resources. Agrobiodiversity at the community level is conceptualized as a collective resource requiring the management of varieties, species and their interrelations within a farming system. In the rice dominated agriculture in the uplands of Kerala, India, few community groups continue maintaining and thus conserving their high diversity in landraces. Faced with the challenges of devastating prices for rice, their traditional system of collective action to exchange seed material and knowledge is endangered. A new institutional mechanism to manage biodiversity is the People’s Biodiversity Register, a mandatory documentation procedure to enable cost and benefit sharing under the Convention on Biological Diversity. Based on 2005 empirical data, the paper analyzes the tribal community of Kurichyas and the People’s Biodiversity Register with special emphasis on gender and the core elements of trust, reciprocity and reputation that make collective action possible. While the Kurichyas are able to control, but not restrict, the viable flow of genetic material, the institutional set up is not positioned to recover the costs of such maintenance. In the case of the Register, the separation of the knowledge from the (female) holder and the lack of conservation efforts of the actual plants and seeds continue to present an institutional challenge.

CDC Department of Health and Human Services centers fr Disese Control and Prevention. Research: Genome Analysis Linking Recent European and African Influenza (H5N1) Viruses. Abstract To better understand the ecology and epidemiology of the highly pathogenic avian influenza virus in its transcontinental spread, we sequenced and analyzed the complete genomes of 36 recent influenza A (H5N1) viruses collected from birds in Europe, northern Africa, and southeastern Asia. These sequences, among the first complete genomes of influenza (H5N1) viruses outside Asia, clearly depict the lineages now infecting wild and domestic birds in Europe and Africa and show the relationships among these isolates and other strains affecting both birds and humans. The isolates fall into 3 distinct lineages, 1 of which contains all known non-Asian isolates. This new Euro-African lineage, which was the cause of several recent (2006) fatal human infections in Egypt and Iraq, has been introduced at least 3 times into the European-African region and has split into 3 distinct, independently evolving sublineages. One isolate provides evidence that 2 of these sublineages have recently reassorted.
