Das Portfolio deutscher Biosphärenreservate im Lichte der Sustainable Development Goals

1 Einleitung Dieser Beitrag beleuchtet die Repräsentativität der deutschen UNESCO Biosphärenreservate. Als Analyserahmen dienen die Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), die Nachhaltigkeitsziele der Vereinten Nationen ( UN 2015 ). Deshalb werden für ausgewählte Ziele aussagekräftige Parameter theoriegeleitet analysiert und in Form thematischer Karten präsentiert. Im Hintergrund dieser Analyse steht zudem der vom Bundesumweltministerium initiierte Prozess eines „Nationalen Aktionsplans Schutzgebiete" ( BMUB 2015 : 35). Dieser soll bis zum Jahr 2020

Resilience as a Multipurpose Concept in Regional and Environmental Development

United Nations use the term in two of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals makes it even more timely and important to have an up-to-date look at its background, notion, emergence and use. The results of a systematic literature review and the in-depth scrutiny of 650 papers published on resilience between 2000 and 2013, a period which was decisive for shaping the discussion in environmental urban and regional studies, allow us to draw a number of conclusions. The bulk of literature which has been developed over the past decade is impressive. There is an abundance of

Designing a Pond and Evaluating its Impact Upon Storm-Water Quality and Flow: A Case Study in Rural Australia


Storm-water management is a common concern in rural catchments where development-related growth causes increases of storm-water flows. Greater magnitude and frequency of storm-water create greater challenges for mitigating storm-water damage and improving water quality. The concept of Blue-Green Infrastructure (BGI) as a solution incorporates a wide range of applicable components with the aim of minimizing the effect of catchment development on flow regimes without changing the watershed morphology. BGI components manage storm-water by decreasing impermeable cover and expanding natural and semi-natural systems to store water or recharge and filter storm-water into the ground. In this paper, guidelines for designing a pond as a component of BGI are provided and, configuration and size of the pond are determined. Moreover, the impacts of the designed pond on storm-water peak flow and quality are assessed for the Tarwin catchment, State of Victoria, Australia. The results indicate that the introduction of the pond would have reduced outfall inflow by 94 % and would have achieved the reduction of 88.3, 75.5 and 50.7 % for total suspended solids, total phosphorus, and total nitrogen respectively, during the extreme weather event in June 2012.
