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.

BLACK VOLTURE
Aegypius monachus

Red List Category: Near Threatened.
Major Threats : The two main threats to the species are direct mortality caused by humans (either accidentally or deliberately) and decreasing availability of food.The main cause of death is the use of poisoned baits for predator extermination, although shooting and destruction of nests also occur. In Europe, decreased food availability is caused by European Union legislation on carcass disposal.
Conservation Actions: The European Council Directive 79/409/EEC on the conservation of wild birds has contributed to the recovery and conservation of the species in Europe, particularly Spain. Co-operation between Spanish government agencies and conservationists under the 'Antidote Programme' also appears to have been effective in mitigating the effects of poisoned baits. Supplementary feeding programmes have been initiated in Spain and France.
