Emerging Experimentalism in EU Environmental Governance

In this chapter, Ecologic Senior Fellow Ingmar von Homeyer argues that the institutional structures and processes underlying EU environmental governance have undergone a significant transformation in recent years. Important characteristics of this emerging "experimentalism" in EU environmental governance include the transition of many important decisions into the implementation stage, trans-nationally networked implementation, and the creation of indicators and reporting requirements for regular review and revision of policies.Read more

Ökologische Transformation – Chancen und Risiken

Wasser: Konfliktstoff oder Friedensstifter?

Does water provide occasions for conflicts or does water become the conflict material when social control mechanisms fail or are developed insufficiently or badly? Are water conflicts perhaps provoked to conceal this weakness? How does good Water Governance look and which positive effects can it bring? Nicole Kranz, R. Andreas Kraemer and Grit Martinez of Ecologic Institute discuss these questions in a chapter of the Jahrbuch Ökologie 2010.

Sharing the Benefits of Using Traditionally Cultured Genetic Resources Fairly

The sharing of benefits from the use of genetic resources between the traditional users and cultivators of such resources and those that wish to use them for commercial or research purposes is a major issue under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). In this book chapter Christiane Gerstetter of Ecologic Legal develops recommendations for provider countries on how to implement the CBD requirement that benefits should be shared fairly and equitably.Read more

Governing Water – International Law Development – The Principle of Subsidiarity

In this book chapter, R. Andreas Kraemer from Ecologic Institute addresses the governance of water and the EU’s Water Framework Directive, focusing mainly on subsidiarity applied to water policy. He describes the conflict arising from a territorial and a bio-regional perspective on the subject and the management of this conflict through the principle of subsidiarity. The chapter features an outline of the Water Framework Directive’s origin and its core ideas, illustrates approaches of water management using examples, including one from the Danube River region, and a number of hydrological maps and gives an outlook to further developments of the water governance area.Read more

The Evolution of EU Environmental Governance
