Biodiversity, Natural Protected Areas And Sustainable Development. Case Study: Brăila County


  • Rosu, Elisabeta

    (Institute of Agricultural Economics, Romanian Academy, Bucharest)


Biodiversity is a huge variety of ecosystems, species and genes, which represent the natural capital, and provides services supporting the economy. The biodiversity values make up the natural heritage that must be used by the present generations without jeopardizing the chance of the next generations to enjoy the same living conditions. The protected areas represent the most important method to preserve biodiversity and to provide development patterns in harmony with nature, in the context of the fast economic development in the last decades.
