Conservation

  1. 1. Conservation By: Ruth Grace Dupingay
  2. 2. Conservation • Is an ethic of resource use, allocation and protection. Its primary focus is upon maintaining the health of the natural world, its fisheries, habitats and biological diversity. • Secondary focus is on materials conservation and energy conservation which are seen as important to protect the natural world. • Those who follow the conservation ethic and especially those who advocate or work toward conservation is called conservationists.
  3. 3. Trans-boarder conservation • Trans-boarder conservation or Transboundary conservation can be loosely defined as the subset of international relations focusing in particular protection of international boarders and boarder region such as the boarder territories. • Applying trans-boarder is often less straight forward, as exemplified in an attempt to a large number of environmental issues, water conflicts, air pollution, migratory species, and trans-boarder landscapes and ecosystems.
  4. 4. • However there are treaties to be attempted to go beyond the settlement of disputes over rights toward the protection of its territory by diplomats and scholars who have developed a somewhat convoluted web of inter-rational legal principles around the subject of international territories.
  5. 5. • Example: • Fierce disputes over the quantity and quality of transborder water including rivers, lakes, and even groundwater. • Mercury emissions from an industrial facility that directly affect a neighboring state downwind do constitute a transborder problem.
