Biodiversity Conservation Agreements

Under this Protocol, countries may prohibit the import of genetically modified organisms (referred to as “living modified organisms” in the Protocol) if they fear a threat to biodiversity or human health. The protocol was signed with 170 members (May 2017). Of the five countries that grow 90% of all genetically modified plants, the United States, Argentina and Canada are not members of the Cartagena Protocol. However, Brazil and India, the other two, have ratified the protocol. Chander, P., &Tulkens, H. (1995).

The BCT`s Conservation Management Programme (CMP) aims to encourage and assist private landowners located in “priority investment areas” or with “conservation properties” on their land to participate in nature protection. While the law only requires the registry to list agreements entered into in accordance with Part 5 of the Act, the BCT will gradually add equivalent information on other private land conservation agreements entered into by landowners and organizations prior to bcT. The BCT must contact each contract holder before information is published in the register. There are about 1,650 such agreements. * Parts of these conservation agreements have not been disclosed for reasons of commercial trust or because they contain culturally sensitive images.

Their optimal level of conservation depends on the benefits and costs, the upper limit of conservation and the parameters α local benefits of conservation. The conservation efforts of other countries have no influence on the most optimal land conservation efforts i. Therefore, increased nature protection efforts in one country, according to this model specification, do not crowd out nature protection efforts in other countries. With the exception of the case where the local benefits of nature protection are very high, our results are rather bleak when it comes to creating a large self-imposed EIA. As for the political implications, the stability of small, stable two-member coalitions could indicate that the development of bilateral agreements might be more desirable for effective conservation than a single major agreement. . . .
