Ein Forschungsbeitrag zur innovativen ländlichen Entwicklung in der EU
Rural development policies and the promotion of innovation represent the basis for the successful development of rural areas. In this context the assessment of innovative initiatives and projects alongside the analysis of the status quo and obstacles to innovations are crucial. In this article Sandra Naumann (Ecologic) und Andreas Frangenberg (FNL), propose a set of indicators to qualitatively evaluate the sustainability and the success of innovation projects. In addition, this publication presents the results of a comprehensive review on innovations in rural regions.Read more

Linking Emissions Trading Systems

A more traditionally jurisprudential perspective on linking is provided in this book chapter published in an anthology titled "Legal Aspects of Carbon Trading: Kyoto, Copenhagen and Beyond" published by Oxford University Press.

Linking Emissions Trading Schemes

A traditionally jurisprudential perspective on linking emissions trading systems is provided in this book chapter by Michael Mehling. He provides a conceptual framework for the distinction of legal and political criteria for the feasibility of carbon market linkages. Legal considerations, he argues, arise during the process of establishing the link, which necessitates recourse to recognized sources of law and legal procedures; and, second, in the event of a conflict between the link as such with substantive legal norms and principles, whether these originate in international, regional or domestic law.Read more

Governing Water – International Law Development – The Principle of Subsidiarity

In this book chapter, R. Andreas Kraemer from Ecologic Institute addresses the governance of water and the EU’s Water Framework Directive, focusing mainly on subsidiarity applied to water policy. He describes the conflict arising from a territorial and a bio-regional perspective on the subject and the management of this conflict through the principle of subsidiarity. The chapter features an outline of the Water Framework Directive’s origin and its core ideas, illustrates approaches of water management using examples, including one from the Danube River region, and a number of hydrological maps and gives an outlook to further developments of the water governance area.Read more

Ökologische Transformation – Chancen und Risiken

Wasser: Konfliktstoff oder Friedensstifter?

Does water provide occasions for conflicts or does water become the conflict material when social control mechanisms fail or are developed insufficiently or badly? Are water conflicts perhaps provoked to conceal this weakness? How does good Water Governance look and which positive effects can it bring? Nicole Kranz, R. Andreas Kraemer and Grit Martinez of Ecologic Institute discuss these questions in a chapter of the Jahrbuch Ökologie 2010.

He argues that conflicts will not arise over the resource itself but rather when climate change induces large flows of environmental refugees.
