  • Technology Transfer for the Ozone Layer Lessons for Climate Change

    Technology transfer - the development of practical applications and commercialization of research for positive environmental outcomes - is the crux of many of the 230 international environmental treaties. It is also widely viewed as essential to the Kyoto Protocol and success in the global fight against climate change. While debate rages about ...

  • Challenges to International Water : Regional Assessments in a Global Perspective

    The Global International Waters Assessment (GIWA) is a holistic, globally comparable assessment of the world's transboundary waters that recognises the inextricable links between the freshwater and the coastal marine environment and integrates environmental and socio-economic information to determine the impacts of a broad range of influences on ...

  • Our Precious Coasts : Marine Pollution, Climate Change and the Resilience of Coastal Ecosystems

    The ability of coral reefs to survive in a globally-warming world may crucially depend on the levels of pollution to which they are exposed, new findings indicate.Scientists studying reefs that were bleached in the late 1990s by high surface sea temperatures have found a link between recovery rates and the levels of contamination entering coastal ...

  • Marine Conservation Biology

    Humans are terrestrial animals, and our capacity to see and understand the importance and vulnerability of life in the sea has trailed our growing ability to harm it. While conservation biologists are working to address environmental problems humans have created on land, loss of marine biodiversity, including extinctions and habitat degradation, ...

  • Large Carnivores and the Conservation of Biodiversity

    Large Carnivores and the Conservation of Biodiversity brings together more than thirty leading scientists and conservation practitioners to consider a key question in environmental conservation: Is the conservation of large carnivores in ecosystems that evolved with their presence equivalent to the conservation of biological diversity within those ...

  • Defying Ocean`s End: An Agenda for Action

    If humankind were given a mandate to do everything in our power to undermine the earth's functioning, we could hardly do a better job than we have in the past thirty years on the world's oceans, both by what we are putting into it-millions of tons of trash and toxic materials-and by what we are taking out of it-millions of tons of wildlife. Yet ...

  • International ocean governance : using international law and organizations to manage marine resources sustainably

    Our oceans are slowly dying, and the instruments of governance are inadequate to stop it. The international dimensions of ocean problems loom larger as we learn more about threats to marine species and ecosystems - invasive species are transported by international shipping, oceans fill with persistent organic pollutants, and nutrients from sewage ...

  • Oil in the Sea III: Inputs, Fates, and Effects

    Since the early 1970s, experts have recognized that petroleum pollutants were being discharged in marine waters worldwide, from oil spills, vessel operations, and land-based sources. Public attention to oil spills has forced improvements. Still, a considerable amount of oil is discharged yearly into sensitive coastal environments.Oil in the Sea ...
