‘Human Rights Are Not Against Society’: On Standing in Climate Change Litigation
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (3/2023)
Bei Klimaklagen hängt der Zugang zu Gericht in besonderem Maße von der Abgrenzung subjektiver Rechte von kollektiven Interessen ab. Wie die Zuordnung individuell geschützter Rechte im Einzelfall vorgenommen wird, bestimmt sich in erster Linie nach der jeweiligen Rechtsordnung. Doch lassen sich von den Gerichten entwickelte dogmatische Herangehensweisen teilweise übertragen. Dieser Beitrag arbeitet auf rechtsvergleichender Grundlage vier Vorschläge im Umgang mit standing bei Klimaklagen heraus und begegnet so der Spannungslage, in der sich subjektiver Rechtsschutz im Licht des Klimawandels befindet.

The Circular Plastic Alliance Declaration of the European Commission targets the us-age of 10 million tons of recycled plastic per year into new plastic products in Europe by 2025 (European Commission 9/20/2019). To assist this objective this work focuses on the improvement of mechanical sorting of polyethylene (PE).

Impressions from a research project on the climate potential of integrated waste management for Indian cities

By using the life cycle assessment (LCA) method, an on-going UFOPLAN study aims to identify the potential of three Indian cities (Bangalore, Bhopal, Haridwar) to contribute to climate protection through climate-friendly waste management systems.

The municipality of Oslo by Energigjennvinningsetaten (EGE) was in December 2015 awarded funding from Gassnova – a state owned company that coordinates the Norwegian CCS-work – to conduct a feasibility study. The purpose of the feasibility study was to demonstrate at least one workable solution for carbon capture from energy recovery for waste, with technical descriptions, cost estimates, project plan and plan and budget for the next phase.

The INTERREG IVb NSR project called "Biochar: climate saving soils", which runs from October 2009 to September 2013, will explore how biochar can help fight climate change in Europe's North Sea region.

Forests and Climate Change Policy: An Analysis of Three REDD-Plus Design Options
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (3/2012)
The continuing debate over climate change and emission reduction strategies widely turns on fossil fuel consumption, industrial emissions, and renewable energy. Nevertheless, comprising the world’s largest stores of terrestrial carbon, forests have assumed a critical, active, and expanding role in climate change policy.

Regulating Climate Engineering: Paradigmatic Aspects of the Regulation of Ocean Fertilization
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (3/2012)
In recent years, ocean fertilization as a climate engineering measure has received considerable attention in the media, politics, and social and legal sciences. Many issues and questions concerning climate engineering in general have developed and evolved around the topic of ocean fertilization. In addition, ocean fertilization is the first specific climate engineering method regulated under international law.

Perceptions of Climate Risk in the South Saskatchewan River Basin (SSRB) and Impacts on Climate Policy Choice
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (12/2011)
This paper addresses how members of government institutions, local water advisory groups and the local rural communities studied construct the risk of climate change in the South Saskatchewan River Basin (SSRB) of Alberta and Saskatchewan and how this impacts climate legislation and policy. A portion of the data obtained in a larger research project surrounding institutional adaptation to climate change is presented. Within the framework of vulnerability and adaptation of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), data obtained from qualitative interviews conducted in 2007–2008 is analysed in relation to the assessment of vulnerability and implicitly the construction of risk in relation to climate change.

Climate Change Action ‘Got ‘tween the Lawful Sheets’
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (12/2011)
Two of the things we have learned about the problems of mitigating climate change is that it is both interdisciplinary and international. Thus, although I will largely be writing from the disciplinary perspective of law, I hope it will not seem too academic to pay especially close attention to some issues of language, for many reasons, not the least of which is to bow in respect of interdisciplinarity. If various disciplines are to speak to one another, they must share some meanings from their specialty languages, and if the disciplines themselves are to emerge from ghettoes of specialization, they must invite others to their language and feel at ease to join the conversations of other disciplines.

Cultural Legitimacy and Regulatory Transitions for Climate Change: A Discursive Framework
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (12/2011)
International climate change regulation poses some fundamental legitimacy issues. This is principally because the spatial and temporal challenges thrown up by rising global temperature do not lend themselves to easy regulation for several reasons.1 Firstly, although atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases around the globe is uniform, the impact of such concentration is not identical across the world.2 Consequently, different regions around the world will not experience the same temperature increase and the usual references to averages in reports mask fact that some places will suffer greater increases.
