    Hydropower development causes a multitude of negative effects on freshwater ecosystems, and to prevent and minimize possible damage, environmental impact assessments must be conducted and optimal management scenarios designed.
    The results of this work show how the initial avoidance and mitigation of hydropower impacts at early planning stages are more productive than the application of any measures during and after dam construction, that the assessment of hydropower impacts must be performed at a basin level rather than be limited to a project implementation site, and that the full spectrum of possible development scenarios should be considered. In addition, this project demonstrates that stakeholder analysis and robust public engagement are as crucial for the success of environmental assessments as scientific research is for the protection of river basins.

    The Amur-Heilong temperate mixed forests are the most biologically diverse temperate forests in Asia, and especially the mixed conifer broadleaved forest of Primorsky province harbors the greatest diversity.
    Over-logging and wildfires are among the main threats these forests are facing nowadays, and climate change is introducing new disturbing factors such as diseases or drought events. Thus, new management strategies are needed for the conservation of these mixed conifer broadleaved forest.
    The main objective of this paper is hence to assess the current status of the pine nuts sector of Primorsky province, and the obstacles and challenges it is currently facing, for identifying the gaps between the needs of the sector and the current conditions, and to suggest the ways to promote an improved institutional and regulatory context, and a possible portfolio of market strategies, both domestic and international.
