Indigenous Peoples in the Arctic

The aim of this paper, prepared by the Arctic Centre in September 2008 as part of the Arctic TRANSFORM project, is to present the situation of the Arctic indigenous peoples in relation to the changing marine environment. The Arctic region is home to several groups of indigenous peoples (including Inupiat, Yup’ik and Aleut in Alaska, Inuit in Greenland and Canada, Saami in Fennoscandia and Russia and, Yup’ik, Chukchi, Even, Evenk and Nenets in Russia). Out of the total population of 4 million people in the Arctic, 10 % are indigenous. Climate change significantly impacts the traditional harvesting and other activities of indigenous peoples.Read more

Cost Effective Measures to Minimise Nutrient Pollution in the Black Sea Region

April 2007 to December 2007

This project introduces national policy makers in the Black Sea countries the basics of selecting cost-effective measures to reduce nutrient pollution. The measures considered within this project are both technical measures that can be locally applied as well as instruments, such as N-taxes, applied on a national/basin wide level.  Additionally, this project presents case studies dealing with nutrient pollution in each of the following sectors: agriculture, industry and municipal. The reports are available for download.

Vorsorgender Küstenschutz und Integriertes Küstenzonenmanagement (IKZM) an der deutschen Ostseeküste

Strategien, Vorgaben und Defizite aus Sicht des Raumordnungsrechts, des Naturschutz- und europäischen Habitatschutzrechts sowie des Rechts der Wasserwirtschaft
Thomas Bosecke critically evaluates coastal protection measures of the southern coast of the Baltic Sea according to an extensive analysis of the biogeographic conditions. He proposes a cautious approach and the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM). The proposed solutions are then reviewed for their legal enforceability with regard to land use planning, nature conservation, property rights and different questions concerning regulatory approval.Read more

On Top of a Melting World: the Impact of Climate Change on Indigenous People in the Arctic Region

TimeLoc
13 October 2004
Berlin
Germany
Speaker
The Arctic has been described as an indicator region for global environmental health. Both in the case of persistent organic pollutants and in the case of global warming, detrimental effects on indigenous peoples are becoming visible throughout the region - impacts that will also be felt in other parts of the world. A Dinner Dialogue with John Crump discussed possible impacts and the actions taken by the Arctic Council in response to these threats. The Dinner Dialogue took place in Berlin on 13 October 2004.Read more

EG-Kompetenzen bei völkerrechtlichen Verträgen im Umweltbereich unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des OSPAR-Übereinkommens

The EC increasingly participates in multilateral environmental agreements alongside its Member States. The appearance of both EC and Member States raises questions of competences for the negotiation, conclusion and implementation of such international instruments. In particular in the field of marine environment, substantial progress is hindered by an opaque division of competences between the EC and its Member States and lack of coordination. Accordingly, the German Federal Environmental Agency commissioned Ecologic and Professor Astrid Epiney with the task of analysing the division of external competences between the EC and its Member States taking into account the OSPAR-Convention. The results of this project have now been published as a book.Read more

Applying EU Environmental Legislation

Learning from the European Court Cases and the Example of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos
What are the impacts of European infringement procedures regarding the non-compliance with nature conservation legislation on certain areas? And, to what extent can protected areas contribute to fulfill the requirements of the nature conservation legislation by means of sustainable management with appropriate financing?Read more

The Precautionary Principle in the Law of the Sea

Modern Decision Making in International Law
The Doctoral Thesis of Simon Marr, lawyer with Ecologic Legal, has been published. The purpose of this study is to examine the present status of implementation of the precautionary principle in the law of the sea and to extract evidence of its acceptance as part of customary international law. The thesis examines the precautionary principle in the law of the sea. The precautionary principle is a risk management tool for policy makers which has been broadly implemented in international environmental law in a variety of different sectors and formulations.Read more

Applying EU Environmental Legislation in the Field of Marine Protection

TimeLoc
19 May 2003 to 20 May 2003
Zakynthos
Greece
What are the impacts of European infringement procedures regarding the non-compliance with nature conservation legislation? To what extent are infringement procedures capable of enforcing the implementation of this legislation? And, on the other hand, to what extent can protected areas contribute to fulfill the requirements of the nature conservation legislation by means of sustainable management with appropriate financing? In order to discuss these issues an international conference entitled "Applying EU Environmental Legislation in the Field of Marine and Coastal Protection" took place on the Ionian Island of Zakynthos on May 19th and 20th, 2003. The preparation and organisation was carried out by Ecologic in co-operation with the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.Read more
