Yearbook of International Environmental Law - Vol. 7

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

to develop a project proposal for providing UNEP with access to ELIS and for cooperating in data collection, management, and dissemination. The ELP-ELIS participated in the negotiations leading to the creation of the Biodiversity Conservation Information System (BCIS) and is a founding partner of BCIS. Negotiations were begun with Cambridge Scientific Abstracts on an agreement to offer ELIS data to subscribers via the Internet. A pilot phase is proposed to evaluate the impacts and benefits of such an undertaking. Preliminary discussions on collaboration in data collection and dissemination were also held with FAO, the World Bank, and the European Topic Centre on Nature Conservation.

ELIS coordinated the survey conducted for the CITES Secretariat on legislation implementing the Convention in 29 countries. ELIS also has an 18-month project to review and update all information in the databank on the legal status of birds in international law and national legislation. This project required intensive effort throughout 1996.

The literature library (ELIS-LI) compiled four bibliographies of documents on international environmental law and policy. The topics covered are biological diversity, climate change, environmental impact assessment, and trade and the environment. Two informal surveys were carried out to collect examples of access legislation for ELIS.

Finally, ELP collaborated in developing the IUCN World Wide Web site-- http://www.iucn.org--launched in 1996.

Questions related to the Organisation's future direction and role have to become more pressing as a result of its recent and future enlargement. OECD membership is expanding to central and (possibly) eastern Europe, as well as to Asia. Yet, at the same time, its budget will be reduced by 10 percent over the next three years. The new Secretary- General has instituted a process for the examination of the OECD's future role, including its work in the environmental field.

In order to assist in this latter task, he appointed a 14-member "High Level
