English translation:Given the context you have provided
Explanation:
isn't this an Environmental Impact Authorization? The authorization to carry out activities that will have certain impacts in the natural surroundings of the activity to be performed?

I would strongly suggest this as the translation.

Best of luck!

Authorization of allocation of natural resources (specific use permit)


Explanation:
Apparently a permit for the exploitation of natural resources. Another idiomatic translation would be "specific use permit".

Explanation:
I didn't find anything under environment, however, this is a financial term and I think you can use it as: "Appropriation of Natural Resources Authorization" you may also be able to use: "Allocation of Natural Resources Authorization" depending in the context

Autorizacion de Explotacion de Recursos Naturales


Explanation:
I'd rather use 'explotacion' (acento en la o) since those resources are not only going to be allocated as inventory but they will undergo a transformation due to this 'afectacion'.

Authorization for Allocation of Natural Resources issued by the Ministry of the Environment


Explanation:
is how it would read in American English (note the use of "for"). Alternatively, "Natural-Resource Allocation Permit..." --HTH, HC

Explanation:
The above Autorización is really a building or construction permit, issued by the Ministerio del Ambiente after the promoter/developer has obtained the respective Autorización para la Ocupación del Territorio (land use permit). I'll quote the Gazeta Oficial (No. 35,946) to give you a more clear understanding: "Otorgada la autorización o aprobación para la ocupación del territorio los promotores de los proyectos procederán a la tramitación de la autorización para la afectación de los recursos naturales renovables respectiva, antes del inicio de la actividad. ...La autorización para la afectación de recursos naturales renovables establecerá las condiciones bajo las cuales se desarrollará la afectación del ambiente durante todas las etapas del programa o proyecto (implantación, operación, clausura, desmantelamiento y recuperación de áreas degradadas). A tales efectos, la autorización para afectación de recursos naturales renovables se ajustará a las medidas y condiciones establecidas en la autorización o aprobación para la ocupación del territorio." The AOT permit can be obtained for a project as a whole, whereas an AAR permit has to be requested for each stage(etapa) of a project. In the case of a subdivision (urbanización), I understand that each plot owner has to request an AAR permit before house construction can begin. Disculpa lo largo, pero espero que sea de ayuda.

Explanation:
Please note that 'afectación' in the context of this question has nothing to do with appropriation. The permit referred to is stipulated in Decree 1257 (Venezuela), titled "Normas sobre evaluación ambiental de actividades susceptibles de degradar el ambiente", part of which I quoted in my previous reply. More context from the same decree: "El Documento de Intención (the first step in the process of requesting approval from the Ministry) contendrá información sobre los objetivos, justificación y descripción de las opciones a considerar para el desarrollo del programa o proyecto propuesto (even for land that's already been set aside for public use), las acciones con potencial de generación de impactos para cada etapa, (etc.). Asimismo, contendrá la información disponible sobre los componentes físico-natural y socio-económico del ambiente a ser afectado por las distintas opciones ..." Even though the name of the permit only refers to renewable natural resources, the Ministry does take a close look at all the potential environmental impacts of the applicant's proposed activity, along with the respective preventive, mitigation and corrective measures, to ensure that the adverse environmental impact is kept to a minimum. Once this permit is issued, development can begin, with a detailed environmental follow-up program. In the U.S., the verb 'to affect' is often used in EPA official regulatory definitions, for example: environmental impact statement (EPA-94/04): a document required of federal agencies by the National Environmental Policy Act for major projects or legislative proposals significantly affecting the environment. (Source: Dictionary of Environmental Legal Terms, C.C. Lee, 1997)

Authorization for Exploitation of Natural Resources


Explanation:
Sorry for not completing my previous entry in English....
I don't think this is about appropriation. It is about exploitation of those resources and of course, there are some policies involved to control any degradation caused by this exploitation. This word can be used within this context, as entered by Webster's Third International dictionary, which defines exploitation as 'utilization or working of a natural resource'
