Case Law of the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee (2004-2008)

Case Law of the Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee / A.Andrusevych, T. Alge, C. Clemens (eds). – Lviv: RACSE, 2008. – 68 p.

 

The publication attempts to summarize the practice of the Compliance Committee of the Aarhus Convention. The publication was designed as a reference tool and comprises two parts. The first part is Aarhus Convention text (without GMO amendment) with inserted interpretations of its provisions by the Committee. The second part is Decision I/7 of the 1st Meeting of the Parties (establishing the compliance mechanism and setting its key procedural elements) with Committee’s case law on procedural issues (such as admissibility requirements). The publication covers all cases considered by the Compliance Committee until Third Meeting of the Parties of the Aarhus Convention (Riga, 2008).

The publication was designed to help policy-makers and practitioners apply and use the Convention in a more effective and uniform way promoting common standards for practical enforcement of environmental human rights in UN ECE region.

This publication is part of a project supported by the Sigrid Rausing Trust.

GREY-SIDED VOLE
Oxyura leucocephala

Red List Category: Endangered.
Major Threats : Remaining sites are vulnerable to pollution. The European population is threatened by competition and hybridisation with the introduced Ruddy Duck O. jamaicensis. Further threats include drowning in fishing-nets, hunting and ingestion of lead shot.
Conservation Actions: The species is legally protected in many range countries, and occurs in a number of protected areas. A conservation programme in Spain has resulted in a significant population increase. O. jamaicensis are controlled in Spain, Portugal and France, and a program was started in 2005 to eradicate the UK population of around 6,000.
