This book examines contemporary models of co-existence and partnerships negotiated between local communities, government, and resource corporations in the Russian District of Purovsky (Arctic Yamal), with some reference to Russia's wider socio-cultural and political contexts and, more broadly, the circumpolar world. Yamal has Eurasia’s richest oil and gas reserves, and is an important crossroads region where various geopolitical and financial interests intersect. Since 1998, a number of unique models of co-existence and participatory dialogue, involving public project reviews, and sound participation of local and indigenous activist groups have been developed and implemented in Yamal. Purovsky District has served as a unique decision-making polygon for the Northeastern Urals. Several joint community-industry-government political and economic cooperation models have been tested and their elements have subsequently been implemented in other Arctic Russian localities. This project is a fieldwork-based reflection on these important developments.

Northern Area of Pakistan consists of the mountainous region, which is rich in snow cover. The concentration of snow in this area is main hydrological resource for Pakistan. Accurate mapping of snow for this area is inevitable for the forecasting of snow-melt discharge for flood control, energy production and irrigation. MODIS snow-cover product (MOD10A1) is generated through an automated procedure which detects and masks clouds from snow surface using a global default algorithm. This distinction is challenging since snow and cloud have comparable reflectance and often comparable temperatures. The accuracy of snow map depends on the accuracy of the cloud mask, that entirely relies on thresholds which may be different in different regions. In this book, development of a regional based snow mapping algorithm is discussed for Northern Pakistan using MODIS data for the period of 2000 to 2008. The results are compared with the MODIS cloud mask in daily snow cover product (MOD10A1). The algorithm can be used for water resource management, as it improves the identification of snow by reducing the spectral overlaps between clouds and snow.

The World and Vietnam forest resource have been seriously depleted over the last century if not to say the last few decades. This research found out the multi-layered mechanisms of land use and forest cover changes in Vietnam’s Northern Mountain Region and suggested the importance of the linkage between the government and people in order to conserve forest cover and to achieve sustainable land use. It is recognized that the multiple channels that link the government agencies with people provide local people with intensive learning process to understand the political intentions behind laws and regulations promulgated at the central government level. Institutional support of state development programs is also of important to build up people’s trust and participation, as well as to receive feed backs to policies and program for better development of forest and people livelihood.
