Kostenaspekte der europäischen Wasserrahmenrichtlinie
According to the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD), all water bodies in the European Union should reach 'good status' by 2015.

By the end of 2004, an economic analysis of the importance of water uses has to be completed for each river basin district.

Eine neue Dimension der Umwelthaftung in Europa?

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
