Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic - A Guide to Best Practice (Hardcover): Timo Koivurova, Pamela Lesser Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic - A Guide to Best Practice (Hardcover)
Timo Koivurova, Pamela Lesser; As told to Sonja Bickford, Paula Kankaanpaa, Marina Nenasheva
R2,307 Discovery Miles 23 070 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Significant growth in economic activity in the Arctic has added weight to the argument that projects must be developed responsibly and sustainably. Addressing growing concerns regarding the exploitation of the Arctic's natural resources, this timely book presents and evaluates examples of best practice in Arctic environmental impact assessment. Timo Koivurova and Pamela Lesser succinctly synthesise primary data gathered from interviews with local communities, indigenous peoples, NGOs, government officials and businesses in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Greenland, Iceland, Canada, Russia and the USA. Considering all stakeholder perspectives, they present the regulatory processes of all eight Arctic countries, and also provide helpful flowcharts that depict the process graphically for each country. Measuring these practices against the 1997 Guidelines for Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic, the only Arctic environmental impact assessment guidance document that has been officially approved by the ministers of all eight Arctic countries, this book identifies key areas where adherence to best practice is high, such as stakeholder outreach and development, as well as those areas that fall short. Thorough and accessible, Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic will provide an excellent reference for academics in the fields of law and environmental studies as well as for government officials and stakeholders who stand to benefit from best practice.

Arctic Law and Governance - The Role of China and Finland (Paperback): Timo Koivurova, Qin, Tianbao, Sebastien Duyck, Tapio... Arctic Law and Governance - The Role of China and Finland (Paperback)
Timo Koivurova, Qin, Tianbao, Sebastien Duyck, Tapio Nykanen
R673 Discovery Miles 6 730 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The objective of this book is to identify similarities and differences between the positions of Finland (as an EU Member State) and China, on Arctic law and governance. The book compares Finnish and Chinese legal and policy stances in specific policy areas of relevance for the Arctic, including maritime sovereignty, scientific research, marine protected areas, the Svalbard Treaty and Arctic Council co-operation. Building on these findings, the book offers general conclusions on Finnish and Chinese approaches to Arctic governance and international law, as well as new theoretical insights on Arctic governance. The book is the result of a collaboration between The Northern Institute for Environmental and Minority Law (Arctic Centre, University of Lapland) and researchers from Wuhan University.

The Proposed Nordic Saami Convention - National and International Dimensions of Indigenous Property Rights (Hardcover, New):... The Proposed Nordic Saami Convention - National and International Dimensions of Indigenous Property Rights (Hardcover, New)
Nigel Bankes, Timo Koivurova
R1,629 Discovery Miles 16 290 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In 2005 an expert group representing the governments of Norway, Sweden and Finland, and the Saami parliaments of these countries agreed upon a draft text of a Nordic Saami Convention. Key parts of the text deal with the recognition of Saami land and resource rights. More recently the three governments have embarked on negotiations to move from this draft text to a final convention that may be adopted and ratified by all three countries. Negotiations commenced in the Spring of 2011 and should be completed within five years. This collection of essays explores the national and international dimensions of indigenous property rights and the draft Convention which recognises the Saami as one people divided by international boundaries. Part one of the book seeks to provide a global and theoretical context for these developments in the Nordic countries, with a series of essays dealing with the moral and legal reasons for recognising indigenous property interests and different conceptualisations of the relationship between indigenous peoples and settler societies, including recognition, reconciliation and pluralism. Part two of the book examines some international legal issues associated with the Convention, including the background to the Convention. Part three turns to examine aspects of the recognition of Saami property interests in each of the three Nordic states, while Part four provides some comparative experiences, examining the recognition of indigenous property rights in a number of jurisdictions, including Canada, Australia and a number of South American states. An additional essay considers gender issues in relation to indigenous property rights.

Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic (Paperback): Timo Koivurova Environmental Impact Assessment in the Arctic (Paperback)
Timo Koivurova
R2,011 Discovery Miles 20 110 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Environmental impact assessment in the Arctic presents a probing examination of the norms of international law that apply to the planning stage of large-scale activities such as hydrocarbon exploitation, mineral extraction and forestry. While the norms that regulate these activities belong mainly to international environmental law, also human rights law, in particular the law relating to indigenous peoples is important. The book will examine the sovereignty situation in the region and the establishment and functioning of the Arctic Council, a high-level platform between the eight Arctic States (the United States, the Russian Federation, Canada and the five Nordic States) and the region's indigenous peoples. Moreover, a detailed look at the evolving regime of the Espoo Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context is taken.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in the Arctic (Hardcover): Timo Koivurova Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in the Arctic (Hardcover)
Timo Koivurova
R2,587 Discovery Miles 25 870 Special order

This title was first published in 2002. This volume examines the norms of international law that apply to the planning stage of large-scale activities such as hydrocarbon exploitation, mineral extraction and forestry. These stationary activities (those that remain at a single location for a period of time), pose grave risks to the Arctic environment, since the development of technology has made it profitable to exploit natural resources even in such harsh regions.

Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment in the European Union - The Espoo Convention and its Kiev Protocol on Strategic... Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment in the European Union - The Espoo Convention and its Kiev Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment (Hardcover)
Simon Marsden, Timo Koivurova
R2,361 Discovery Miles 23 610 Special order

This book examines 'The Espoo Convention on Environmental Impact Assessment in a Transboundary Context', which celebrates the twentieth anniversary of its adoption in 2011, and its 'Kiev Protocol on Strategic Environmental Assessment' which came into force in July 2010. In addition to contributing to international environmental law, the Convention has prompted significant changes to European environmental law. The chapters in this collection explain the role of transboundary environmental impact assessment in international and European law, and explore the relationship between international and European law in the context of potential application of the Convention. They also examine examples of the Convention in practice, and consider the potential application of the Protocol. While the focus of the book is on the situation in the European Union, reference is made to the relationship between EU and non-EU member states, notably in connection with important cases in the Arctic, the Danube Delta and the Baltic Sea.

Theory and Practice of Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (Hardcover): Kees Bastmeijer, Timo Koivurova Theory and Practice of Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (Hardcover)
Kees Bastmeijer, Timo Koivurova
R4,405 Discovery Miles 44 050 Special order

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a well-established instrument of Environmental Law and policy that aims to ensure that potential adverse environmental effects of human activities are assessed before decisions on such activities are made. The instrument is increasingly being applied in respect of activities that may cause environmental effects across the borders of a state. In this book, thirteen systems of Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (TEIA) are assessed that exist or are in development in different parts of the world. Although TEIA is generally associated with EIA between territorial states, this book takes a broader approach and is divided into three sub-parts: Transboundary EIA between states, EIA for activities in international and shared areas, and EIA required by international financial institutions. Knowledgeable experts (scholars and practitioners) provide an overview of the history, content, and practice of the individual systems and, based on these discussions, the state of the art concerning TEIA and possible future developments are discussed.
