EC External Competences

November 2002 to May 2003
The EC increasingly participates in international conferences and mixed international 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 with the task of analysing the division of external competences between the EC and its Member States taking into account the OSPAR-Convention.Read more

The Mediterranean Action Plan and the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership: Identifying Goals and Capacities Improving Co-operation and Synergies

February 2002 to June 2002

With the project "The Mediterranean Action Plan and the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership: Identifying Goals and Capacities - Improving Co-operation and Synergies", Ecologic focuses on a series of institutional challenges and opportunities which the two major regional organisations in the Mediterranean basin are facing.

Since 1976 Mediterranean countries and the EU have been combatting environmental pollution and degradation in the Mediterranean region under the Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP). In response to the UNCED in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, the original pollutant-centred approachRead more

Applying EU Environmental Legislation to the Field of Marine Protection

November 2001 to October 2003
Ecologic Institute prepared a background paper for this international conference, which took place on the island of Zakynthos (Greece) on 19-20 May 2003. The main objectives of the event were to examine procedures for non-compliance with the nature conservation legislation of the EU; to offer a forum to discuss possible actions to achieve compliance with European legislation and the overall aim of sustainable marine protection; to provide an opportunity to share best practices and exchange experiences and know-how concerning the sustainable management of marine protected areas and financial instruments for nature conservation; and to deliver results which are applicable to the development of the national park administration and an appropriate conservation strategy on Zakynthos.Read more

Fisheries and the Environment: Outline of Research

March 1999 to August 2000
In the course of this project Ecologic identifies, documents and evaluates the deficits of national and international research projects dealing with the integration of environmental considerations into fishing. The outcoming study serves to support the preparation of the 5th International North Sea Conservation Conference.Read more

Outstanding Climate Adaptation

The "Regional Adaptation Strategies for the German Baltic Sea Coast" (RADOST) project, led by Ecologic Institute, was recently awarded a spot among the "365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas," along with six other German regions that are instituting climate adaptation measures. The model regions of the research program "KLIMZUG – Managing Climate Change in the Regions for the Future" are among the "Selected Landmarks 2012" that are being recognized by the "Germany – Land of Ideas" initiative of the Federal Government and German business community. The jury has thus acknowledged the innovative approach of RADOST and the other KLIMZUG projects that attempts to involve regional stakeholders in all steps of research design and implementation, starting at the very beginning of the process.

EU and US join forces to combat IUU fishing

It is currently estimated that illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing practices are worth around 10 billion Euros each year – a shocking 19% of the value of catches worldwide. The EU and the US are both concerned about the disastrous environmental and socio-economic impacts of this illegal fishing activity and have each introduced their own legal measures. However, IUU fishing is a trans-boundary issue. The regular and coordinated exchange of information and practical tools is therefore essential for tackling IUU activity in the north Atlantic and beyond.
