Monitoring of Tidal Flats and Waterbirds in New Songdo City, ROK, by Local Students

We work in New Songdo City, Incheon City, built on recently reclaimed tidal flats. At Chadwick International School, our seventh grade students are studying the effects of ongoing reclamation of tidal flats on waterbirds, in particular the locally breeding but globally Endangered Black-faced Spoonbill, Platalea minor. We are collaborating with a local NGO, the Incheon Black Faced Spoonbill Network (IBFSN) to perform year round avian surveys of three waterbird habitats, including the remaining Songdo tidal flats.

Sauvegarde communautaire du lamantin d´Afrique et promotion de l´Agriculture familiale durable au Bénin

Les zones humides du Sud-Bénin représentées par les Vallées de l´Ouémé et du Mono sont des écosystèmes dotés d´importantes ressources naturelles et d´énormes potentialités socio- économiques. Ces zones déclarées sites RAMSAR abritent plus de 50% de la population béninoise (avec des densités rarement inférieures à 150 habitants au km²) sur 10% de la superficie du territoire national. Les ressources biologiques constituant la base de toutes les activités sont utilisées de façon non durable.

Key Issues in International Water Law - Identifying Progressive Solutions from Best Practice

The principles and procedures which comprise International Water Law have developed rapidly in recent years but many uncertainties remain, due in large part to the emergence of a number of novel challenges in international water resources management. The CEL Specialist Group on Water and Wetlands (SGWW) is engaged in a comprehensive and in-depth examination of international best practice in respect of three key issues currently arising in the practice of International Water Law:
1. The Role of International Water Law in Climate Change Adaptation;

Business & biodiversity: the role and the potential of the tourism industry

Traditionally the tourism industry has had a negative impact upon biodiversity, in particular along coasts. Except for ecotourism, the tourism industry in general has had very little involvement in the conservation of its main resource: landscape, nature, the sea, beaches. While the debate on corporate social and environmental responsibility is widely present, we should find ways in order to involve the tourism industry in biodiversity conservation and in the regeneration of natural capital (marine and coastal ecosystems). After all, that is the base of the tourism business.

Food Security -the neonicotinoid era of pest management: impacts on pollinators and entomofauna at large

Over the past 15 years neonicotinoid insecticides have rapidly grown to become the most widely used and fastest growing class of insecticides worldwide with a market share of 25%. Neonicotinoids (now also called neonics) act systemic: they enter the plant sap through the roots, making the whole plant permanently toxic to insects. Neonicotinoids are unprecedently toxic to beneficial insects such as pollinators. Neonicotionoids are neurotoxic and act cumulative. Neonicotionoids are unique in their harmfulness to insects in sub-lethal dose and chronic exposure.
