  • Introduction
  • The challenge of sustainability in fisheries
  • Regulating fisheries towards sustainability
  • Identifying the ties that bind West African states and the EU
  • Sustainability and integration in the EU's common fisheries policy
  • The promotion of sustainability in EU fishing in developing third country waters
  • Senegal's marine fisheries
  • EU-Senegalese relations : the 2002-2006 agreement
  • Conclusions.
Marine living resources are currently under severe threat from unsustainable use. International law urges a precautionary approach in the use of remaining fish stocks, necessitating rational domestic management of coastal fisheries and requiring foreign nations accessing these stocks to cooperate to this end. The manner in which bilateral fishing relations between the EU and various West African states have historically played out, however, has not followed this route. This book is a legal study of these relations from an inter-disciplinary and contextual perspective with particular reference to sustainability questions using three broad conceptual lenses: common resource management, integration towards sustainable development and the colonial legacy to interrogate the extent to which these interactions operated as legal instruments of sustainability.

As International Investment Agreements (IIAs) continue to evolve and become increasingly complex, a key challenge for developing countries is how to maintain coherent investment obligations that are consistent across any overlapping treaty provisions. An even greater challenge is the effective negotiation of trade in services and investment commitments in Preferential Trade Agreements to make foreign investment supportive of development. This guide is designed to assist developing countries to negotiate IIAs that are more effective in promoting their sustainable development. It identifies and consolidates emerging best practices from existing treaty models, evaluating the costs and benefits of different approaches; suggesting new and innovative provisions to encourage foreign investment flows; and outlining how states can achieve coherence among their IIAs. A useful reference tool for developing country negotiators and interested parties, including investment promotion agencies, policy-makers, legislative drafters and officials in government legal departments.

What are viable strategies for cutting costs while protecting the public's safety? Corrections can achieve some substantial cost savings in sustainability or greening strategies. This publication "provides correctional professionals with a framework to gain a general understanding of sustainability practices and principles and to identify examples of operations, programs, and management strategies for self-sustaining facilities" (p. ii). Sections of this publication include: introduction: greening of correctional facilities; completing the sustainable model--preparing and training inmates; correctional industries--creating sustainable products/services and a green workforce; green reentry programs; recommendations for greening prisons and jails; and conclusion--the sustainable correctional/detention facility of the future.

  • Copper mining in Zambia : from collapse to recovery / Christopher Adam, Anthony M. Simpasa.
The study of natural resource extraction in resource-rich countries often shows that plunder, rather than prosperity, has become the norm. Management of natural resources differs widely in every state; a close examination of the decision making chains in various states highlights the key principles that need to be followed to avoid distortion and dependence. This book consists of eight case studies investigating the political economy of the decision chain, revealing where various states have met with success, or failed disastrously. This original research provides a unique insight into how different countries have handled their resource extraction. This book is essential reading for students, researchers and policy makers working across development economics and natural resource economics.

  • Conclusions.
Responding to climate change is a global challenge with significant implications for small developing countries. Debate on how trade policy can mitigate the effects of climate change has so far centred on developed countries and the large emerging economies, especially China, Brazil and India, but what are the implications for small and vulnerable economies (SVEs), least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS)? These countries are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change but they are least equipped to deal with changes in trade policy. Trade, Climate Change and Sustainable Development examines the opportunities and multiple large-scale challenges they face in adapting key trade sectors to the impact of climate change, addressing climate change measures, and furthering their own trade capacity and competitiveness in the global market. This book is the result of a joint project between the Commonwealth Secretariat and the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development, Geneva. It will be of interest to policy-makers and anyone who wants to gain a clear understanding of the implications of climate change on the economies of smaller developing states.

This work charts a legal course towards principled development and management of the marine environment. It analyzes key principles of sustainable development and their implications for ocean law and policy, including integration, precaution, pollution prevention, polluter pays, public participation, community-based management and international equity. The author summarizes participation in global and regional agreements and arrangements for protecting the marine environment and suggests future directions for global, regional and national legal systems. For example, national law reforms include: establishing a coastal zone management framework, developing a process for designating and managing marine protected areas, adopting a precautionary approach in decision-making and recasting the public trust doctrine.

This strategy is the successor to the World Conservation Strategy (also issued by IUCN, UNEP & WWF), which stressed the interdependence of conservation and development and gives currency to the idea of sustainable development. It made the point that unless the vitality and productivity of the planet are safeguarded, the future for humanity is at risk. Caring for the Earth builds on all that has been learned in the ten years since the World Conservation Strategy. Nothing less than a new ethic is required, based on affirming the community of life and cherishing its diversity - an ethic which has to be reflected in our personal attitudes and the organization of our communities as much as in wider policies. The author concludes that public participation is essential for the success of the strategy, which is addressed to individuals and citizens' groups as well as to governments - whatever their systems.

The chapters in this volume are based on the papers that were presented at a seminar in March 1994 organized under the auspices of the newly established ILA Committee on Legal Aspects of Sustainable Development. The seminar focused on the legal principles and international practice of sustainable development and good governance as one of its constitutive elements. The book is divided into four parts: Evolution of Concepts, Participatory Development, Development Co-operation and Human Rights, and Sensible Economic and Social Policies. They reflect the holistic concept of sustainable development advanced by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature sustainable development. This concept implies that maintaining a quality of life for many generations is socially desirable, economically viable and ecologically sustainable. The volume highlights the principle of sustainable development as a major topic in international law embodied in the international instruments agreed upon at the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro (1992).
