Abstract

The Black Sea, a heavily polluted enclosed sea, is governed by the Bucharest Convention and associated Protocols. These set out a baseline for action to address pollution in the sea and the protection of biodiversity. This chapter focuses upon the control of pollution. It demonstrates that while the original Convention met the standards of the time it was agreed, developments since then have been lopsided. Although an innovative protocol to address marine pollution from land-based activities has been agreed, it has yet to enter into force. At the same time, the provisions on dumping are now rather dated and have not been revised, despite the Parties noting the importance of doing so as long ago as 1996.
