FileUNEP Regional Seas Report and Studies No. 194 - Measuring Success: Indicators for Regional Seas Conventions and Action Plans by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Jan 13, 2015 12:47
This study considers the relevance of a ‘coordinated set’ of indicators capable of comparing common regional marine ecosystem issues. The report collates information on ecosystem-based indicators and indices currently being measure by regional entities and seeks to identify common elements. From this analysis the report postulates whether a limited generic set of indicators can be derived. A series of case studies are used to exemplify the diversity of ways indicators have been applied. For State of the Environment reporting, ecosystem-based indicator systems have developed in an ad hoc way, influenced by regional pressures and priorities. Indicator systems linked to targets and objectives have been more coordinated (e.g. Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme) and the European Environment Agency (EEA) approach to indicators is an example of pan-regional coordination associated with regulatory requirements. Indicator information is most usually collected on an annual basis but this is not always the case with the possibility of some near real time data collection. Most indicator systems in place are being adapted and refined based upon evaluations of their usefulness and practicality. However, all regional entities regard them as costly and technically challenging. There is something of a mismatch between expectations of policy and ability to achieve reporting needs and an opportunity to consider which global data and information streams can best serve to support the needs of the RSP.
FileUNEP Regional Seas Reports and Studies No. 187 - Guidelines for the Placement of Artificial Reefs by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Jan 13, 2015 12:57
The installation of artificial reefs can be considered to be placement under the terms of the Convention or Protocol, rather than dumping, provided such placement is not contrary to the aims of the Convention or Protocol (see section 2.1.1 for further details). Although these guidelines have been developed within the context of the London Convention and Protocol, they are, as is true for any guidelines, not legally binding on any country, whether or not it has existing national regulations. The purpose of the Guidelines is to: assist those countries that have recognized the need to assess proposals for the placement of artificial reefs on the basis of scientifically sound criteria, as well as to develop an appropriate regulatory framework; assist with the implementation of regulations in those countries where such regulations are already in place, but where there is nevertheless a need for such guidance; assist in updating existing guidelines or regulations.
