 Region
Regions are conceptual constructs and, thus, may vary among cultures and individuals.
The word "region" is taken from the Latin regio, and a number of countries have borrowed the term as the formal name for a type of subnational entity (eg, the región, used in Chile).

The new WWF report was released today internationally - and in Canada with the Suzuki Foundation - to coincide with the launch of WWF's campaign to persuade at least 25 countries to ratify the Kyoto Protocol on global warming.

As global warming changes their habitat, many species will be unable to move to new areas fast enough to survive, raising the possibility of an enormous loss of species in one-fifth of the world's most vulnerable natural areas.

Paragraph (a)(2) lists the regions that present an undue risk of introducing BSE into the United States because their import requirements are less restrictive than those that would be acceptable for import into the United States and/or because the regions have inadequate surveillance.
Given that the denial of a permit application may not serve in all cases to provide a regulatory basis for preventing the importation of ruminants from regions affected with BSE, we have amended the regulations in Sec.
Provided, however, the Administrator may upon request in specific cases permit ruminants or products to be brought into or through the United States under such conditions as he or she may prescribe, when he or she determines in the specific case that such action will not endanger the livestock or poultry of the United States.
