Effective protection of the marine and terrestrial environment increasingly requires cooperation between neighbouring States, international organizations, government entities and communities within States. This book analyses key aspects of transboundary environmental law and policy and their implementation in Asia, Australasia and Australian offshore territories, and surrounding areas beyond national jurisdiction including Antarctica. It discusses the potential for implementing key transboundary environmental mechanisms such as the 1991 Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context (Espoo Convention) and its 1997 Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment (Kiev Protocol) in Australia and Asia drawing on experience from other regions and the potential application of these agreements to all UN member states. The book makes an innovative contribution to research in the area of transboundary environmental governance particularly as it applies to Asia, Australasia and international areas, supplementing similar research which has predominantly focused on Europe and North America.

Governance of Marine Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservationexplores governance of the world’s oceans with a focus on theimpacts of two inter-connected but historically separate streams ofgovernance: one for fisheries, the other for biodiversityconservation. Chapters, most co-authored by leading expertsfrom both streams, investigate the interaction of these governancestreams from ecological, economic, social and legal perspectives,with emphasis on policies, institutions processes, and outcomes onscales from the global to the local community, and with coverage ofa range of themes and regions of the world. The book opens with chapters setting the historical context for thetwo marine governance streams, and framing the book’sexploration of whether, as the streams increasingly interact, therewill be merger or collision, convergence or co-evolution. Theconcluding chapter synthesizes the insights from throughout thebook, relative to the questions posed in the openingchapters. It also draws conclusions about future needs anddirections in the governance of marine fisheries and biodiversity,vital to the future of the world’s oceans. With cutting edge chapters written by many leading internationalexperts in fisheries management and biodiversity conservation, andedited by three leading figures in this crucially importantsubject, Governance of Marine Fisheries and BiodiversityConservation is an essential purchase for fisheries scientists,economists, resource managers and policymakers, and all thoseworking in fields of biodiversity conservation, marine ecology, andcoastal livelihoods. Libraries in all universities and researchestablishments where environmental and/or marine studies,conservation, ocean policy and law, biological and life sciences,and fisheries management are studied and taught, should have copiesof this most important book.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Bevolkerungsgeographie, Stadt- u. Raumplanung, Note: 1,0, Universitat Leipzig (Institut fur Infrastruktur und Ressourcenmanagement), Veranstaltung: Sustainable Development, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Okosysteme der Erde sind nicht mehr im Stande, das heutige Volumen wirtschaftlicher Aktivitat und materiellen Konsums unserer Zivilisationsgesellschaft zu tragen. Die treibenden Faktoren sind dabei v.a. das weltweite Wirtschafts- und Bevolkerungswachstum sowie der rasante Anstieg des Pro-Kopf-Verbrauchs von Ressourcen, wodurch die ohnehin belastete Biosphare uberbeansprucht wird. Das immer rasantere Wirtschaftswachstum ist nicht nur hauptverursachend fur den Raubbau an naturlichen Ressourcen, es treibt den Keil zwischen Arm und Reich noch tiefer in die Gesellschaft statt uberall wurdige Lebensbedingungen geschweige denn breiten Wohlstand herzustellen. Die Kritik an sozialer Ungerechtigkeit und dem rucksichtslosen Wachstums-streben verscharfte sich mit der Erkenntnis, dass hierdurch die okologische Tragfahigkeit der Erde uberstrapaziert wird, d.h. Ressourcenkonsum und Abfallproduktion die Natur schneller verbrauchen als diese in der Lage ist, sich zu regenerieren. Erst der beschleunigte Ressourcenverbrauch ermoglichte zwar ein derartig rasantes Wirtschaftswachstum und den damit verbundenen hohen Lebensstandard in den Industrielandern, dies jedoch auf Kosten der Umwelt, also Walder, Boden, Luft und Artenvielfalt. Der zivilisierte Mensch hat heute kaum noch direkten Bezug zu seiner naturlichen Umwelt, da er sich durch technische und automatisierte Prozesse weitgehend unabhangig gemacht hat. So mussen Lebensmittel beispielsweise nicht mehr selbst angebaut, sondern konnen im Supermarkt gekauft werden. Entstehende Abfalle werden bequem vor der Haustur abgeholt und fernab unseres unmittelbaren Wohn- und Lebensumfeldes entsorgt. Die meisten sehen in der Natur nur noch ein Sammelsurium von kom

The present report is the fourth in a series of reports published every five years on environmental trends in the region. The report looks at the prevailing environmental conditions in the terrestrial, aquatic and atmospheric systems and highlights the responses to environmental problems. It examines the relationship between environmental change and economic and social conditions. In addition, it reviews the national and regional responses to the problems of environment and sustainable development. It also presents key emerging issues in human ecosystems, which are described in terms of urban environment, wastes, poverty and food security. Finally, the report identifies key challenges and areas in which urgent action is needed, particularly in regard to regional and international collaboration efforts. [UN website]

Water scarcity, whether in the quality or quantity dimension, afflicts most countries. Decisions on water management and allocation over time, space, and among uses and users involve economic considerations. This Handbook assembles research that represents recent thinking and applications in water economics. The book chapters are written by leading scholars in the field who address issues related to its use, management, and value. The topics cover analytical methods, sectoral and intersectoral water issues, and issues associated with different sources of water.
