Nach dem Sommer kommt für EU-Beamte „La Rentrée“

don, 09/15/2011

In den meisten französischsprachigen Ländern bezieht sich „La Rentrée“ auf den Schulbeginn für eifrige und weniger eifrige Schüler nach den Sommerferien.

Hier in Brüssel ist das ein wenig anders. Wenn hier jemand von „Rentrée“ spricht, dann meint er wahrscheinlich damit, dass Eurokraten, EU-Beamte und -Parlamentarier nach ihrer Sommerpause die Arbeit wieder aufnehmen.

Bei jeder neuen „Rentrée“ liegen nach einem eher trägen August neue Energie und Enthusiasmus in der Luft.

Faule Nashorn-Diebe machen weltweit leichte Beute in Museen

Einer meiner letzten Jobs führte mich nach Sanaa, die Hauptstadt des Jemen. Es ist schwer, alle Sinnesreize zu beschreiben, die auf mich hereinprasseln, wenn ich Bab Al-Jemen, das Tor zu Sanaas Altstadt passiere, doch zwei Dinge fallen mir besonders ins Auge.

Das Erste ist der Anblick eines Kamels mit Scheuklappen, das in einen engen Raum gepfercht wie in einem Gefängnis dahin vegetiert. Das Kamel dreht endlose Runden um einen Mühlstein, Stunde für Stunde, Tag für Tag; der Stein ist im Grunde des Kamels einzige Daseinsberechtigung.

Whaling Meeting Closes-Future Uncertain For Whales and Commission

Publication Date: 
vri, 06/27/2008
 “The Commission is trying to chart a course for the future while ignoring ongoing whaling by just three member countries,” said Patrick Ramage, IFAW Global Whale Program Director. “Whale conservation measures were put on ice at this meeting.  If Japan, Norway and Iceland are serious about compromise, they should prove it by suspending their ongoing whaling.”

This week’s meeting focused mainly on the future of the commission, with only brief flashes of conflict between pro-whaling and conservation-minded countries.

African Elephant Coalition roots for conservation, not ivory trade

Publication Date: 
din, 06/24/2008

In  a communiqué read by Mali delegate, Alpha Maiga, the range states also opposed a recommendation by the CITES Secretariat designating China as an Ivory trade partner and resolved to make a formal communication before the CITES Standing Committee Meeting 57 scheduled set for July 2008 in Geneva.  Consideration for further trade and trading partners, they also resolved, should only be made after the one-off sale approved at CoP 14 has taken place and the effects of that sale are documented and understood.

Publication Date:

Significant amounts of ivory in these stocks up for export from Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe, has been collected through culling, which is defined as killing as a means to address population control, and also natural deaths.
 
Newly released document submissions to next month’s 57th meeting of the CITES Standing Committee (SC) reveal that the Secretariat has given its endorsement of the sales as well as its support of China being accepted as an importer for these stocks.
