Authored by international experts from academia, international organizations, governments and NGOs, this book highlights the main environmental security issues in the South-East European (SEE) countries, with a particular focus on climate change and water management. The common goal of the authors was to provide a reliable evaluation of whether existing legal regimes and correct implementation of applicable international treaties may contribute to reducing environmental security risks in the region. In-depth analyses and assessment of major challenges in compliance, serve as a firm ground which such evaluation is based on. This volume is recommended for public officials, legal practitioners and consultants. Its interest may also extend beyond the SEE countries, serving as a case-study of a broader and paradigmatic relevance of the analysis and management of environmental and security issues in a trans-boundary context.

The Lake Governance book will focus on comparative analysis of governance structures by examining policy, legal and institutional structures of current transboundary commissions to develop a common framework for good governance of transboundary lakes. Cooperation among nations sharing natural resources is important for sustainable use of the shared resources. Lakes contribute a big part to GDP in most of the countries and in some cases are also responsible for providing fisheries (for food, source of protein and livelihood). Climate change and associated risks and uncertainties add more complexity to the problems. This book will explore current water governance challenges, knowledge gaps and recommend a framework for good lake governance.

This book focuses on sustainable use and protection of transboundary aquifers located along the eastern border of European Union starting from the Baltic Sea and end in the Black Sea. The groundwater resources in this region play a very important role not only as a source of clean and safe drinking water, but also for social, economic and safety reasons. This publication sheds light on a wide range of real problems related to the management of groundwater, problems that are characteristic for most countries situated in the East European region. It also identifies potential threats that may materialise in the absence of cooperation between countries and appropriate measures to jointly manage the shared water resources in the region. Experience from some ongoing projects towards integrated management of transboundary aquifers (research, monitoring and data analysis) is reported. The book is addressed, in particular, to groundwater academics, researchers and experts as well as water management specialists interested in solving environmental issues extended to more than one country territory. On the other hand presented knowledge and experience would be also useful for decision makers especially to support environmental decision processes in border areas and work on preparation of international agreements on groundwater management.

‘Les rivières sont des chemins qui marchent et qui portent où l’on veut aller’, schreef de Franse filosoof en wiskundige Pascal. Zijn Britse tijdgenoot, ‘the water poet’ John Taylor beschreef ze als the ‘cherishing veines of the body of every Countrey, Kingdome, and Nation’. Het zijn slechts enkele citaten die het aanzienlijk belang weergeven dat internationale rivieren en het gebruik ervan voor transportdoeleinden in de politieke en economische geschiedenis van Europa hebben gespeeld en tot op de dag van heden nog steeds spelen. Dit boek analyseert deze geschiedenis over een periode van ruim 2000 jaar, van de tijd van de Romeinen tot op heden. Het beschrijft de eeuwenlange strijd tussen steden en staten om de heerschappij over de rivieren, met de meer dan 200 jaar durende sluiting van de Schelde als triest culminatiepunt en de ommekeer met het Scheldedecreet in 1792, in het zog van de Franse Revolutie, met afkondiging van vrije scheepvaart voor alle ingezetenen van oeverstaten. Het sindsdien in de internationale orde erkend beginsel van de belangengemeenschap van oeverstaten, heeft niet belet dat de strijd om het vrij gebruik van rivieren ononderbroken is verder gegaan. Sinds vijftig jaar zijn ook de Europese Instellingen zich in deze strijd gaan mengen en hebben zij er een nieuwe dimensie aan gegeven.

Dit boek behandelt in extenso alle juridische aspecten verbonden met het gebruik van binnenwateren voor scheepvaartdoeleinden, met name door binnenschepen. Zowel publiekrechtelijke als privaatrechtelijke vraagstukken komen daarbij aan de orde. “Het voorliggende werk is monumentaal, niet enkel in omvang maar vooral naar inhoud. Mij is geen andere wetenschappelijke bijdrage bekend die op een zodanig alomvattende wijze het rivierenrecht situeert en analyseert en er eveneens in slaagt om het op een bevattende wijze te duiden. Dr. Marc De Decker etaleert op een meesterlijke manier zijn uitgebreide historische en juridische kennis van het Europese rivierenrecht en voert de lezer mee op een intrigerende tocht naar de schepping van een juridisch systeem waarmee bijna iedereen wordt geconfronteerd maar wat weinigen werkelijk kunnen bevatten. De verschillende grote ontwikkelingen die stapsgewijs tot stand zijn gekomen, van de Franse revolutie over het Congres van Wenen, het verdrag van Parijs van 1856 naar de grote verkeersconferenties in de 20ste eeuw, worden met meer dan een vaardige hand beschreven en geanalyseerd. Bijzonder boeiend is het plaatsen van het Europese rivierenrecht binnen het grotere kader van het internationaal publiek recht. Fundamentele aspecten zoals de vrijheid van scheepvaart en de institutionalisering van het rivierenrecht worden grondig behandeld en geven zonder meer een grote meerwaarde aan dit boek. Het toetsen van de materie tegenover het recht van de Europese Unie en tegenover andere dan scheepvaartgebruiken van de waterwegen vervolledigt de aanpak van de auteur waarmee het voorliggende werk een bijna alomvattend beeld geeft van het Europese rivierenrecht. Dit boek verdient veel aandacht. Niet enkel academici maar eveneens praktijkjuristen en diegenen die elke dag met watergebonden vervoer worden geconfronteerd, zullen baat vinden bij het gebruiken van dit werk. Een absolute aanrader!” (Prof. Dr. E. Somers in het voorwoord)

While almost every aspect of society-nature interactions can be treated as an environmental security issue, the threats to human societies originating from inadequate freshwater management constitute one of the most wi- spread and pressing problems. For thousands of years rivers and river valleys have been the cradle of human civilizations. Rivers have provided not only food and freshwater, but also shelter and means of transportation, and they are still an essential component in every national and regional economy. In turn, growing needs of human societies, accompanied by growing abilities, have caused significant river alterations and ecosystem changes that have resulted in river contamination, biodiversity loss and general riverine ecosystem degradation. The extinction of sturgeon species is one of the most eloquent examples of the negative and irreversible influence of human society on river e- systems. The sturgeon, sometimes called the “living fossil” or living “dinosaur” of the fish world, is known to have lived since the time of the dinosaurs, for at least 250 million years, and is currently on the verge of extinction solely due to anthropogenic impacts.

On 21 November 2007 the grand and elegant Delegates Hall of the Hungarian Parliament was the scene of the opening of a conference to discuss some of the most pressing issues of the day, those related to our unending thirst for energy, its environmental consequences, and the challenges that these bear on security. Over the next 3 days scientists, parliamentarians and their guests confronted, challenged, teased and cajoled each other in a NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW) entitled “Energy and Environmental Challenges to Security,” affirming that knowledge and public service hold the keys to solving our greatest challenges. The magnitude of the security challenge was confirmed while this volume was being prepared. In mid-2008, the International Energy Agency issued a report concluding that US$45 trillion would be needed over the next half century to prevent energy shortages and greenhouse gas emissions from undermining global economic growth. But lest such large numbers cause us all to shrug, this volume brings attention to some of the more manageable aspects of the environment and energy security challenge – from addressing conflict resources such as illegal timber that contribute to corruption and regional instability, to means and mechanisms to enable the diversification of energy supplies, to environmental risk reduction strategies for particular installations. The participants in the Hungarian Parliament building were atypical for a NATO Advanced Research Workshop.
