Key words: protected areas, green belt, Fennoscandia.
The concept of the Green Belt of Fennoscandia (GBF) appeared early in the 1990s as the result of international cooperation and united efforts in implementation of sustainable development principles in border areas, implying a balanced combination of economic development and nature conservation the society is interested in. GBF is a strip of terrtry stretching along the Russian-Finnish (in the North also Russian-Norwegian) border from the Barents to the Baltic Sea (including Gulf of Finland waters, islands and coast within the Leningrad Region). The core areas of GBF are protected areas (PAs) of both federal and regional subordination, which are ecologically linked with the pan-European environmental network (Natura 2000) and with PAs of Norway.
