New publication released: "Vital Caspian Graphics: Challenges Beyond
Caviar"



Publisher: UNEP/GRID-Arendal

Order on-line at Earthprint.com

ISBN: 82-7701-039-7

Data of Publication: April 2006

For further information, please contact: [email protected]



Vital Caspian Graphics: Challenges Beyond Caviar examines very complex,
yet
fascinating issues affecting the environment of the Caspian Sea and the
surrounding areas. Illustrated with more than 50 maps and diagrams, it
provides a well-researched, well-documented and up-to-date analysis of
the
geopolitical, economic, environmental, population and security
conditions
that have resulted to a blend of competition and reluctant collaboration
among nation states, complex economic interests, as well as legal,
political, and ideological struggle in the region. It also features a
number of earlier published newspaper articles that are relevant to the
issues addressed.



We often associate the Caspian Sea with caviar that is legally or
illegally
finding its way to our tables, but overlook the footprints left by a
number
of industries installed on shores of the Caspian that are serving the
world
wealthiest market demands. The struggle for access to the vast resources
of
this unique and fragile ecosystem and the development of new
transportation
routes between Europe and Asia continue to shape the geopolitical and
security conditions in and around the world's largest body of inland
water.
These and other developments pose complex challenges in the efforts of
countries to improve the damaged ecosystems that the local communities
are
depending on.



In view of the profound significance of the Caspian Sea region to global
and
regional environmental security, Vital Caspian Graphics will be an
invaluable tool for individuals, academics, governments, and
corporations.
