Public Endangered Species Table

A resolution to increase the quality of the world's environment, at the expense of industry.

Category: Environmental | Industry Affected: All Businesses - Mild | Proposed by: The Forest of Aeneas


Whereas a public database of endangered species would;

  1. Promote awareness regarding endangered organisms whose endangerment would otherwise be overlooked, in turn encouraging conservation action;
  2. Help member states tailor their conservation efforts to be more efficient, as knowledge of endangered organisms would be more available; and
  3. Aid further research regarding endangered organisms, in turn further facilitating conservation thereof;

And whereas past World Assembly law tasks the WAESC with creating a variety of documentation and assessments regarding species and subspecies and endangerment thereof, but does not mandate that these assessments or lists be public or include other information relevant to conservation but not necessarily threats to survival, nor does it fully prevent or ban member states from purposefully concealing evidence of species endangerment or the extent thereof;

And whereas a separate resolution to do so and complement past conservation-related law would help to ensure that extinction can be mitigated as much as possible;

Now, therefore, as given due consideration and thereby decided by World Assembly Delegations and Ambassadors of member states united from across this grand both natural and artificial realm, and with the authority and assent of the same, the following shall hereby be enacted as binding World Assembly law by this most excellent chamber.

  1. Database. The Endangered Species Database Institution (ESDI) shall be formed as a subcommittee of the WA Endangered Species Committee and shall carry out the following tasks to the best of its ability;

    1. Compiling and regularly updating a database, known as the Public Endangered Species Table and hereinafter referred to as the 'Table', of all extant and recently extinct species, subspecies, and populations, and all data substantially relevant to past, current, or potential future conservation efforts thereof, including but not limited to natural habitat, diet, threats to survival, predators, genetic details, likelihood of extinction or endangerment, location, and sightings, based on objective information of clear demonstrableness from research, reports, or other evidence practically available to and publicly documented by the ESDI.
    2. Publishing the Table in full and in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access.
    3. Using funds from the WA General Fund to complete tasks assigned to the ESDI in this resolution if necessary to do so.
  2. Investigations. The ESDI may conduct investigations to find new data that would significantly aid in updating the Table within member or consenting non-member states.

    1. Each member state where such an investigation is occurring must, to the best of its ability and in good faith, comply with all requests for information in regard to that investigation by the ESDI, except for such requests for information whose accessing, provision, or publication is demonstrably substantially likely to compromise national security or individual privacy.
    2. ESDI access for such an investigation may only be denied to areas within a member state to which access is restricted for all national residents without specific authorisation for protection of national security or public health or safety, or that area's status as private property, a quarantined area, or a vulnerable culturally or environmentally significant site, by that member state or an entity therein in charge of preventing unauthorised access to that area, unless the ESDI can clearly demonstrate that such access is to the minimal extent necessary to achieve the aim of that investigation. If the ESDI does enter such an area, it shall take sufficient precautions to duly minimise risk to national security, public health or safety, or damage to that private property or culturally or environmentally significant site.
    3. No member state or entity therein may wilfully otherwise obstruct the due course of any such investigation, via action or lack thereof.
  3. Provision of information. Member states must, to the best of their ability and in good faith, provide the ESDI with all research and factual data respectively published or discovered within their jurisdiction that they have practical access to, has not already been received by the ESDI, and is substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts, unless the accessing, provision, or publication of that information is demonstrably substantially likely to compromise national security or individual privacy.
  4. Protection of sensitive information. Notwithstanding other mandates of this resolution, the ESDI shall not place in the Table, make public, or otherwise distribute any information in a manner that is substantially likely to compromise national security or individual privacy, nor shall the ESDI place in the Table raw intellectual property outside of mere fact.

  2. Help member states tailor their conservation efforts to be more efficient, as knowledge of endangered organisms would be more available; and
  3. Aid further research regarding endangered organisms, in turn further facilitating conservation thereof;

And whereas past World Assembly law tasks the WAESC with creating a variety of documentation and assessments regarding species and subspecies and endangerment thereof, but does not mandate that these assessments or lists be public or include other information relevant to conservation but not necessarily threats to survival, nor does it necessarily prevent member states from purposefully concealing evidence of species endangerment or the extent thereof;

And whereas a separate resolution to do so and complement past conservation-related law would help to ensure that extinction can be mitigated as much as possible;

Now, therefore, as given due consideration by World Assembly Delegations and Ambassadors of member states united from across this both natural and artificial realm, and with the authority and assent of the same, the following is hereby enacted as World Assembly law.

  1. Committee duties. The Endangered Species Database Institution (ESDI) shall be formed as a subcommittee of the WA Endangered Species Committee, and shall carry out the following tasks to the best of its ability;

    1. Compiling and regularly updating a database, known as the Public Endangered Species Table (hereinafter the 'Table'), of all extant and recently extinct species, subspecies, and populations, and all data substantially relevant to past, current, or potential future conservation efforts thereof, including but not limited to natural habitat, diet, threats to survival, predators, genetic details, likelihood of extinction or endangerment, location, and sightings, based on objective information of clear demonstrableness from research, reports, or other evidence practically available to and publicly documented by the ESDI.
    2. Publishing the Table in full and in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access.
    3. Conducting investigations to find new data that would significantly aid in updating the Table within member or consenting non-member states.
    4. Using funds from the WA General Fund to complete tasks assigned to the Table Committee in this resolution if necessary to do so.
  2. Cooperation with investigations. Each member state where a 1.c investigation is occurring must, to the best of its ability, at the lowest possible cost, and in good faith, comply with all requests for information in regard to that investigation by the ESDI. No member state or entity therein may wilfully otherwise obstruct the due course of any such investigation, via action or lack thereof.
  3. Provision of information. Member states must, to the best of their ability, at the lowest possible cost, and in good faith, provide the ESDI with all research and factual data respectively published or discovered within their jurisdiction that they have practical access to, has not already been received by the ESDI, and is substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts.
  4. Protection of sensitive information. Notwithstanding other mandates of this resolution, the ESDI shall not place in the Table, make public, or otherwise distribute any information in a manner that compromises national security or individual privacy. The ESDI shall, without undue delay, destroy any material evidence in its possession whose public release would compromise national security or individual privacy of an entity who has not voluntarily and clearly consented to the continued holding of that evidence by the ESDI, where the continued holding by the ESDI of that material evidence is not clearly necessary as a sine qua non to either help discover, or maximise accuracy or demonstrableness of, specific new information for the Table.

    2. Publishing the Table in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access to the full Table.
    3. Conducting investigations to find new data that would substantially aid in updating the Table at each location within member or consenting non-member states in which such data is, in the WAESC's view, likely to be found via such an investigation.
    4. Utilising funds from the WA General Fund to complete tasks assigned to the WAESC in this resolution if necessary to do so.
  3. Cooperation with investigations. Each member state where a 2.c investigation is occurring must, to the best of its ability, at the lowest possible cost, and in good faith, provide WAESC investigators investigating in that investigation with all information with regard to that investigation requested by those investigators. No member state or entity therein may wilfully otherwise obstruct the due course of any such investigation, via action or lack thereof.

      1. This database shall be published in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access, such that the Table can be accessed both fully and partially, remotely and in-person.
      2. The ESDI shall not place information in the Table that, if publicly released in the context of the Table, would compromise individual privacy or national security.
    2. Reviewing research, reports, or other evidence provided to the ESDI, and updating the Table with information from the same relevant to the Table of reasonable accuracy and demonstrableness in the view of the ESDI.
    3. Accepting all non-fraudulent donations voluntarily provided to the ESDI, which shall only be used for maintaining, creating, publishing, or distributing the Table, or 2.d investigations; if these do not suffice, the ESDI may use funds from the WA General Fund only for the same purposes.

Conducting its own investigations within areas within member states or consenting non-member states to discover information substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts, where, in the ESDI's view, there exists substantial evidence that substantial information substantially relevant to the same is substantially likely to be discovered via such an investigation.
  3. Each member state where a 2.d investigation is occuring must, to the best of its ability, at the lowest possible cost, and in good faith, provide ESDI investigators investigating in that investigation with all information with regard to that investigation requested by those investigators. No member state may knowingly otherwise obstruct any 2.d investigation, via action or lack thereof.
  4. Member states must, to the best of its ability, at the lowest possible cost, and in good faith, provide the Database Institution with all research and new evidence published or discovered within their jurisdiction that has not already been submitted to the Database Institution and is substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts.
  5. Member states are strongly encouraged to support and fund scientific research within their jurisdiction regarding endangered species, subspecies, and populations, and to utilise the Table in tailoring their conservation efforts for greatest efficiency and informedness.

Whereas a public database of endangered species would;

  1. Help to identify and confirm sightings of previously unknown populations of endangered organisms, providing further opportunity for conservation efforts thereof;
  2. Help member states be more informed in conserving endangered organisms, with greater availability of knowledge thereof facilitating the efficient conservation of the same; and
  3. Aid further research regarding endangered organisms, in turn further facilitating conservation thereof;

And whereas [resolution=GA#465]GA#465: Preventing Species Extinction[/resolution] enacts beneficial law that helps prevent species extinction, and tasks the WAESC with 'Documenting all known species and genetically distinct sub-species which are native to the territories of member nations; assessing threats to the continued survival of the above species and subspecies; [and] creating a list of all species and subspecies threatened with extinction by non-natural causes [...] and a species by species assessment of the short-term risk of extinction', but fails to mandate that these assessments or lists be public or include other information relevant to conservation but not necessarily threats to survival, or require the WAESC to carry out investigations of individual cases of species endangerment, meaning that member states may try to conceal evidence of species endangerment;

And whereas a separate resolution to do so and supplement GA#465 would help to ensure that species extinction can be mitigated as much as possible;

Now, therefore, as given due consideration by World Assembly Delegations and Ambassadors of member states united from across this natural realm, and with the authority and assent of the same, the following is hereby enacted as World Assembly law.

  1. Within this resolution, 'conservation' means organised and systematic action to protect the survival of any non-captive species, subspecies, or population of non-sapient organisms, from threats to the same that have been wholly or partially induced by sapient activity.
  2. The Endangered Species Database Institution (ESDI) shall be formed as an office of the World Assembly Endangered Species Committee. It shall carry out the following tasks to the best of its ability;

    1. Compiling and managing a full, frequently updated, and public database, known as the Public Endangered Species Table, of all extant and recently extinct species, subspecies, and populations, and all information substantially relevant to past, current, or potential future conservation efforts thereof, including but not limited to natural habitat, diet, threats to survival, predators, genetic details, likelihood of extinction or endangerment, location, and sightings.

      1. This database must be published in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access, such that the Table can be accessed both fully and partially, remotely and in-person.
      2. The ESDI shall not place information in the Table that, if publicly released in the context of the Table, would compromise individual privacy or the security of a non-member or compliant member state.
    2. Reviewing research, reports, or other evidence provided to the ESDI, and updating the Table with information from the same relevant to the Table of reasonable accuracy and demonstrableness in the view of the ESDI.
    3. Accepting all non-fraudulent donations voluntarily provided to the ESDI, which shall only be used for maintaining, creating, publishing, or distributing the Table, or 2.d investigations; if these do not suffice, the ESDI may use funds from the World Assembly General Fund only for the same purposes.
    4. Conducting its own investigations within areas within member states or consenting non-member states to discover information substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts, where, in the ESDI's view, there exists substantial evidence that substantial information substantially relevant to the same is substantially likely to be discovered via such an investigation.
  3. Each member state where a 2.d investigation is occuring must, to the best of its ability, at the lowest possible cost, and in good faith, provide ESDI investigators investigating in that investigation with all information with regard to that investigation requested by those investigators. No member state may knowingly otherwise obstruct any 2.d investigation, via action or lack thereof.
  4. Member states must provide the Database Institution, at the lowest possible cost, with all research and new evidence published or discovered within their jurisdiction that has not already been submitted to the Database Institution and is substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts.
  5. Member states are strongly encouraged to support and fund scientific research within their jurisdiction regarding endangered species, subspecies, and populations.

Whereas a public database of endangered species would;

  1. Help to identify and confirm sightings of previously unknown populations of endangered organisms, helping member states to efficiently reduce the threats to these organisms' survival;
  2. Help member states be more informed in conserving endangered organisms, with greater availability of knowledge thereof facilitating the efficiency of conservation of the same; and
  3. Aid further research regarding endangered organisms, in turn further facilitating conservation thereof;

And whereas [resolution=GA#465]GA#465: Preventing Species Extinction[/resolution] enacts beneficial law that helps prevent species extinction, and tasks the WAESC with 'Documenting all known species and genetically distinct sub-species which are native to the territories of member nations; assessing threats to the continued survival of the above species and subspecies; [and] creating a list of all species and subspecies threatened with extinction by non-natural causes [...] and a species by species assessment of the short-term risk of extinction', but fails to mandate that these assessments or lists be public or include other information relevant to conservation but not necessarily threats to survival, or require the WAESC to carry out investigations of individual cases of species endangerment, meaning that member states may try to conceal evidence of species endangerment;

      1. This database must be published in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access, and can be accessed both remotely and in-person.
      2. Access to the Table may only be restricted if providing such access would compromise the privacy of individuals or the security of a nation (in which case only access to the sections where providing access would compromise such privacy or security may be restricted), or if ESDI can clearly demonstrate that said access is in bad faith.
    2. Reviewing research, reports, or other evidence provided to ESDI, and updating the Table with information from the same relevant to the Table meeting reasonable standards of accuracy;
    3. Accepting all non-fraudulent donations voluntarily provided to ESDI, which shall only be used for maintaining, creating, publishing, or distributing the Table, or 2.d investigations; if these do not suffice, ESDI may use funds from the World Assembly General Fund only for the same purposes.
    4. Conducting its own investigations within areas within member states (or non-member state if that non-member state explicitly grants permission to ESDI to do so in advance) where, in its view, there exists substantial evidence that substantial information substantially relevant to any past, present, or future, conservation efforts is likely to be discovered by such an investigation.
  3. Member states must fully cooperate with 2.d investigations by ESDI, and must provide, at the lowest possible cost, all information requested by ESDI investigators in regard to that investigation that can be provided without compromising national security or the privacy of individuals.
  4. Member states must provide the Database Institution, at the lowest possible cost, with all research and new evidence published or discovered within their jurisdiction that has not already been submitted to the Database Institution and is substantially relevant to any past, present, or future conservation efforts.

Whereas a public database of endangered species would;

  1. Help identify and confirm sightings of previously unknown populations of endangered species, helping member states efficiently reduce the threats to these species' survival;
  2. Facilitate efficient conservation efforts by individual member states of endangered species due to the greater availability of knowledge of the circumstances of endangered species; and
  3. Aid further research regarding endangered species, in turn further facilitating conservation;

And whereas [resolution=GA#465]GA#465: Preventing Species Extinction[/resolution] enacts beneficial law that helps prevent species extinction, and tasks the WAESC with 'Documenting all known species and genetically distinct sub-species which are native to the territories of member nations; assessing threats to the continued survival of the above species and subspecies; [and] creating a list of all species and subspecies threatened with extinction by non-natural causes [...] and a species by species assessment of the short-term risk of extinction', but fails to mandate that these assessments or lists be public or include other information relevant to conservation but not necessarily threats to survival, or require the WAESC to carry out investigations of individual cases of species endangerment, meaning that member states may try to conceal evidence of species endangerment;

And whereas a separate resolution to do so and supplement GA#465 would help to ensure that species extinction can be mitigated as much as possible;

Now, therefore, as duly considered by member states united from this natural realm, the following is enacted.

  1. A 'population' means a group of non-sapient, non-captive organisms of the same type within the same area.
  2. The Endangered Species Database Institution (also known as the Database Institution) shall be formed as an office of the WAESC. It shall carry out the following tasks to the best of its ability;

    1. Compiling and managing a full, frequently updated, and public database, known as the Public Endangered Species Table, of all known extant and recently extinct species, subspecies, and populations, and all information substantially relevant to past, current, or potential future conservation efforts thereof, including but not limited to natural habitat, diet (if any), any threats, predators, genetic details, likelihood of extinction or endangerment, location, and sightings.

      1. This database must be published in a manner that maximises the breadth and ease of public access, and can be accessed both remotely and in-person.
      2. A cost for access may only be imposed by the Database Institution if it is the lowest cost necessary with 2.c funding to cover the cost of maintenance, creation, publication, and distribution of the Table, and 2.d investigations, and must be administered in a manner that is the least burdensome on public access necessary to cover such costs.
      3. Access may only be restricted if the accessor fails to provide the required cost compliant with 1.a(ii), if providing such access would compromise the privacy of individuals or the security of a nation (in which case only access to the sections where providing access would compromise such privacy or security may be restricted), or if the Database Institution can clearly demonstrate that said access is in bad faith.
    2. Reviewing research, reports, or other evidence provided to the Database Institution, and updating the Table with information from the same relevant to the Table meeting reasonable standards of accuracy;
    3. Accepting all donations voluntarily provided to the Database Institution, which shall only be used for maintaining, creating, publishing, or distributing the Table; if these do not suffice, the Database Institution may use funds from the WAGF only for the same purposes.
    4. Conducting its own investigations within areas within member states (or non-member state if that non-member state explicitly grants permission to the Database Institution to do so in advance) where, in its view, there exists substantial evidence that substantial information substantially relevant to any past, present, or future, conservation efforts is likely to be found through such an investigation.
  3. Member states must fully cooperate with 2.d investigations by the Database Institution, and must provide, at the lowest possible cost, all information requested by the Database Institution investigators in regard to that investigation that can be provided without compromising national security or the privacy of individuals.
  4. Member states must provide the Database Institution, at the lowest possible cost, with all research and new evidence published or discovered within their jurisdiction that has not already been submitted to the Database Institution and is substantially relevant to past, present, or future conservation efforts of any population.

Opposed to Article 2a(ii) as written. Access to fundamental scientific information such as the PEST, especially information held by a WA committee, ought to be available at no charge.

There is no reason why the name of the committee created in Article 2 should be abbreviated as "Database Institution" rather than - say - "ESDI."

'Charge is removed. Acronym is changed to 'ESDI'.'

OOC: As I said on discord, the charge mandate was there because information used to make the Table is likely to be patented, but I suppose the WAGF can fund it instead and people who access it to violate patents can be prosecuted anyway.

I don't know what you mean by that. There are a few things here. First, patents and copyrights (while intellectual property) are not the same thing.

Third, IP law is meant to enjoin people from using or reproducing that IP without permission. "People" in that phrase does not include the sovereign. And it is a huge stretch to say that mere receipt is infringement.

Why do you agree with Makko Oko that fraudulent, non-WA funding is undesirable for the ESDI?

Why do member states have to actively cooperate with ESDI investigations, which can occur without their agreement? This reeks an awful lot of the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations that would allow the WHO Director-General to declare a health emergency in any country at any time for any reason without that country's consent. I am becoming increasingly opposed for the same reason I opposed GA#566.

Ambassador Cecilia Maro. So that the ESDI does not rely on fraudulent funding.

Member states have to actively cooperate with investigations because not cooperating with investigations would make them more difficult and prevent the Table from being a reliable public source of information in regard to endangered organisms. This does not allow the ESDI (or WAESC) to declare an environmental emergency for no reason. Investigations may only occur if 'in [the ESDI's] view, there exists substantial evidence that substantial information substantially relevant to any past, present, or future, conservation efforts is likely to be discovered by such an investigation'. Moreover, mere gathering of evidence is not an environmental emergency. All member states are required to do is cooperate with investigations, not immediately start making conservation efforts if the ESDI does an investigation.'

Ambassador Cecilia Maro. 'We have removed the mandate that member states may refuse to provide information in an investigation if it compromises privacy or national security. This does NOT authorise violation of privacy or national security. Information that violates that and finds its way into the Table will NEVER be made public because 2a.ii requires the ESDI to 'suppress public access to sections of the Table that would compromise individual privacy or national security if public access is provided to'.'
