Global International Waters Assessment Patagonian Shelf, GIWA Regional assessment 38
University of Kalmar on behalf of United Nations Environment Programme

This report presents the assessment of Patagonian Shelf and associated river basins. The report focuses on the La Plata River Basin, the second largest watershed in South America, and the South Atlantic Drainage System, comprising basins that drain large arid areas of Argentina and one of the world's largest continental shelves. Pollution in the La Plata River Basin has caused considerable environmental degradation while fishing has changed marine habitats and communities. The root causes of environmental degradation in the Argentinean and Uruguayan Common Fishing Zone and the Uruguay River Basin, shared by Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, are identified and potential remedial policy options are presented

Status of the Environment in the Republic of Palau
Palau Conservation Society

Palau is blessed with a wealth of natural resources. We enjoy clean air, clean water, abundant marine life, and healthy, productive reefs. Our stunning Rock Islands and majestic dive sites continue to draw admiration from around the world. But Palau’s wealth is not just found in its natural resources. Palau has also been blessed with a wealth of human resources and technical capabilities. The population of Palau is well educated and highly talented, and makes use of the most advanced computer and development techniques on a daily basis. Weaving these sources of natural and human wealth together is perhaps the most important resource of all: our traditions. Palauans maintain strong cultural ties to their land, their waters, and their history, and with these ties we strive to preserve and conserve all of our precious resources. This is not to say that Palau does not have its problems and pressures. Development pressure is strong and driven largely by economic motives. Balancing the benefits of development with the dangers of exploitation continues to be a challenge, but a challenge that Palauans are meeting head on.
