The national action programme has as its objectives a national audit on the current status of desertification' awareness-raising, consultation, and policy analysis and writing. The objectives of the Convention are: to stem the progressive encroachment on and loss of wetlands now and in the future, recognising the fundamental ecological functions of wetlands and their economic, cultural, scientific and recreational value; to encourage the 'wise use' of the world's wetland resources; and to co-ordinate international efforts for this purpose. Now what? To mobilize international cooperation and financial assistance for wetland conservation and wise use in collaboration with other conventions and agencies, both governmental and non-governmental. Thus, unless a vessel carrying such materials is engaged in activities that otherwise render its passage non-innocent, the coastal state has no right of non-flag enforcement. Many of the constitutive treaties of these organisations provide the jurisdictional basis for aspects of non-flag enforcement, including, in particular, non-flag at-sea boarding and inspection.
Admittedly, the legal basis for port state control or enforcement is different, resting as it does on the customary right of states to deny access to their ports in respect of fishing vessels. Retrieved August 4,from cms. These measures are the absolute minimum that must be done if populations are to have any realistic hope of recovering. One of these proposals is from South Africa to the effect that our elephant population be transferred from Appendix I to Appendix II to allow the following: trade in raw ivory under an experimental quota of a maximum of 30 tonnes of government-owned stock originating from the Kruger National Park presumably from past culling operations ; trade in live animals for re-introduction purposes into protected areas; trades in hides and leather goods; and trade in hunting trophies for non-commercial purposes. According to David Harland Killing Game: International Law and the African Elephant at'Rhinoceros horn is consumed mainly in countries that are not members of CITES; are not particularly amenable to international pressure; and have no domestic constituency for wildlife conservation. This was met by sharp criticisms from environmental organisations, and prompted calls for alternative methods to regulate Atlantic bluefin fisheries, such as protection under CITES.
These latter two aspects apply only to Annex I countries, which are the developed countries. This is particularly important given the admitted focus on interdicting vessels of North Korean origin. Convention on Biological Diversity, Nairobi, 22 May Contains information about a host of environmental issues, including international material. In concluding his examination of the then recently-adopted UNCLOS regime relating to jurisdiction and enforcement against delinquent vessels, Professor Shearer noted that state practice and jurisprudence would be needed to provide content to the complex and often vague provisions of the Convention. As of 25 October16 had ratified it while 84 had signed it.

After a seven year process, and with leadership from the United States, the Commission is nearing the final stage of negotiations of amendments to the ICCAT Convention that reflect more modern principles of fisheries management, such as the precautionary and ecosystem approaches to fisheries management.
This can include a coastal state, a port state where that state is different from the coastal state, or any other state, which is not the flag state of the vessel.

These conditions were met and nearly 50 tons of ivory was sold in a one-off deal with Japan. Joint resolution 1992 protocol to the 1966 Conservation of Atlantic Tunas Convention book Res. It has been argued that while non-flag enforcement in the former case may have reached a level of acceptance in international law such that it might now be considered a rule of customary international law, this threshold has not yet been reached in the latter case, particularly in the context of the PSI.
Certainly, such interference can be based on a treaty right. It seems that the move has been successful and elephant herds, at least in southern Africa, have increased in number as the ivory price has tumbled. In a letter to the Secretaries of Commerce, Interior and State, the groups reiterated the necessity for a moratorium and the need to immediately: 1 reduce the current quota for western Atlantic bluefin tuna to 1, metric tons; and 2 consider an immediate closure of all known bluefin tuna spawning grounds at least during known spawning periods.
The process of incorporating a newly-passed piece of legislation into the Code is known as "classification" -- essentially a process of deciding where in the logical organization of the Code the various parts of the particular law belong. In any event, in both cases, to echo the words of Professor Shearer, state practice and jurisprudence is still needed to establish the parameters of a right of non-flag enforcement against delinquent vessels on the high seas.
In addition, they do not, per se, deal with enforcement. The objectives of the treaty are: to ensure, through international co-operation, that the international trade in species of wild fauna and flora does not threaten the conservation of the species concerned; and to protect certain endangered species from over-exploitation by means of a system of import export permits issued by a management authority under the control of a scientific authority.

Given the accepted institutionalisation of RFMOs as the recognised regulators of high seas fisheries, assuming these issues are either effectively dealt with within the RFMO or adequate procedures are in place for doing so, there seems no basis on which to oppose consolidation of the rule.
