Under the terms of the [Benelux Agreement concerning Hunting and the Protection of Birds, 1970] the three Benelux countries are obliged to: (1) legally classify game into four categories: large game (such as deer), small game (such as the hare), water game (such as geese) and other game (such as crows); (2) consult each other in fixing the opening and closing dates of the hunting season; (3) ensure that the extent of areas where hunting with shotguns is permitted is greater than certain specified minimum areas; (4) consult each other on the types of authorized hunting attributes and methods; (5) limit the period during which game may be traded in accordance with the requirements of the Agreement; (6) protect non-game bird species, including prohibiting possession with intent to sell, selling, purchasing and supplying; (7) ensure that trade in non-game bird species is prohibited. Each Party is responsible for instituting the necessary measures to implement the Agreement and for monitoring and enforcing the provisions of the Agreement on its own territory.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
