By Günther Handl; Jutta Brunnée et al. | Go to book overview

Environment Programme and with support from the Asian Development Bank and the National University of Singapore. APCEL was established in response to the need for capacity building in environmental legal education and the need for enhancing awareness of environmental issues. APCEL is to serve as a regional training center for the teaching of environmental law and serve as both a regional and global clearinghouse for environmental law information in conjunction with IUCN's Environmental Law Information System. Current APCEL projects include the development of tertiary level educational curricula for regional instructors in environmental law; the creation of an Internet accessible database containing both international and regional instruments; and various environmental fora and workshops designed with a multi-disciplinary focus.

(1) Treaty Practice and Implementing Legislation

Japan's ratification of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea became effective on July 20, along with three new statutes (including the Law on the Exclusive Economic Zone and the Continental Shelf) and amendments to five domestic laws (including the Law concerning the Prevention of the Marine Pollution and Maritime Accidents).


(2) International Conferences

Akio Nakajima, the Parliamentary Vice-Minister of the Environment Agency, reiterated at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Ministerial Meeting on Sustainable Development, July 11, Manila, the importance of the Osaka Action Agenda adopted at the APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting in 1995. The Agenda document notes that "recognizing their shared responsibility for sustainable development, APEC economies will integrate environmental considerations in all relevant APEC activities." Nakajima noted that with a view to this objective, the Environment Agency of Japan had organized the Environmental Congress for Asia and the Pacific (Eco-Asia) to offer an opportunity for an exchange of opinions and ideas among environment ministers and other governmental officials from Asia- Pacific countries, as well as representatives of international organizations. Eco-Asia '96 met May 26-27, in Minakami, Gunma Prefecture, with about 760 ministers and high-ranking officials from 20 countries in the region and 10 international organizations attending.
