Lessons from Domestic Environmental Impact Statements for International Conservation
Currently, the UN is in negotiations concerning a new treaty to manage the biodiversity found in Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (i.e. the high seas, where pirates [used to] roam). As part of this, they will be discussing environmental impact statements, a process that is used extensively here in the U.S. as part of the National Environmental Policy Act. This potential project would compare the lessons learned from the NEPA process and consider them in the international context.
