Examples include integration of biodiversity and ecosystems in the management of sustainable land use; methods of pest control that reduce toxic runoff; methods of organic farming for enhanced biodiversity; control of livestock to protect flora and fauna; and innovations to reduce human-animal conflict in agricultural areas. The grand prize will be US$30 thousand. Additional prizes of US$15 thousand will be awarded in each of four special categories. The best solution submitted before 10 February will be awarded US$5 thousand. Finally, a prize of US$1 thousand will be awarded for winning nominations.
