Finding and Implementing Synergies Between MEAs in Relation to the Conservation and Sustainable Management of Forests

November 1999 to December 2000

Several multilateral environmental agreements relate to forests (e.g. Convention on Biological Diversity, Framework Convention on Climate Change, Ramsar Convention, World Heritage Convention, etc.), but so far their interrelationship is not synergistic.

The challenge of finding synergy is an important one in its own right, but has become all the more urgent given the recent establishment of the UN Forum on Forests. This project seeks to derive recommendations on how to enhance synergy by examining the issue at the global, EU and national level. To examine the implementation issues inRead more

Environment and Security: Research Requirements and Research Priorities

August 1999 to December 1999

The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) asked Ecologic in cooperation with the Swiss Peace Foundation to undertake a study on environmental conflict.

During the 1990s, the term "environmental security" became a buzzword for social sciencists within the realms of environment and security policy-making and in peace and conflict studies. As a result of the academic and political debate which employed differing definitions of "environment and security," this issue area soon lost its conceptional sharpness.

The German Federal Ministry forRead more

Following the steady growth of this market share, the issue of market transparency has become one of the major concerns for the near future. Read more

Responding to Environmental Conflicts: Implications for Theory and Practice

January 1998 to December 2002

In January 1999, Ecologic conducted the workshop on "Responding to Environmental Conflicts: Implications for Theory and Practice". The aim was to discuss how to prevent environmental conflicts using approaches in different policy fields. In particular, non-governmental ways to tackle the complex dynamics of this type of conflict were considered.

From 21-23 January 1999, Ecologic Institute directed in collaboration with the Zrínyi Miklós University of National Defence in Budapest, Hungary, a NATO Advance Research Workshop (ARW) entitled "Responding toRead more

The Kyoto Protocol

November 1997 to January 1999
After protracted negotiations involving the highest political levels, the Kyoto Protocol to protect the global climate was adopted in 1997. Not only does it set, for the first time ever, quantitative limits for the emissions of greenhouse gases by industrialised countries, but it also introduced a number of complex and innovative mechanisms. In the project report that was published as a book, the negotiations and their result are analysed in detail. Read more

EU Policies and Measures on Climate Change

September 1997 to January 1998

In the 1997 Kyoto Protocol to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the EU and its member states committed to an 8% reduction of their greenhouse gas emissions by 2008-2012 compared to 1990. This project investigated the effects of EU regulations and activities that had been implemented or planned by 1998 on the greenhouse gas emissions of the Union.

The study identifies the main fields of political activities of the EU that have an impact on the emissions of greenhouse gases, names the regulations (Directives, Regulations, Decisions) and programmes adopted and planned inRead more

Sustainability Indicators for International Institutions

September 1997 to October 1997

Since the 1990s, there has been a lively debate on which indicators should best be employed to measure and assess sustainability. Varying indicators are suitable for different thematic areas. In this project, indicators for the sustainability of international institutions were assessed and further developed.

Established in 1992, the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) over several years developed a list of indicators that could be employed in order to describe and assess comprehensively the situation inRead more

Structures, Policy Instruments and Key Stakeholders in Tourism and Environment

December 1996 to May 1997

Over the past few years environment and tourism has evolved into an issue of importance. As increasing environmental problems result from tourist activities, efforts to confront the issue are becoming more diverse and intense.

Implementation of the Montreal Protocol: Analysis of Production and Consumption Data

December 1996 to December 1997
Effective implementation of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer can only be achieved if a sound informational basis concerning the current status of the phase out of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) exists. Information on production and consumption of ODS is submitted to the Ozone Secretariat in Nairobi by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol.Read more
