WA Office | Land Reclamation Regulation


The proposal ‘Regulating Land Reclamation’ aims to impose restrictions on how countries are allowed to use land reclamation, here defined as repurposing previously uninhabited areas. Although this is certainly a commendable goal, we feel that the legislation has a few flaws which obstruct the efficacy of these regulations. Additionally, there is the argument to be made that some restrictions are overly burdensome, considering the benefits of land reclamation.

First, section 5 of the proposal exempts all freshwater environments from the majority of the legislation’s protections, a confusing and unjustified exception, which prevents these environments from being protected. Furthermore, section 2(a) uses the word ‘land’ instead of ‘area’, thus failing to adequately ensure the safety of aquatic animals.

Second, the proposal is generally incredibly heavy-handed in its approach to land reclamation. Section 3 means that even a nation suffering from overpopulation, which would have disastrous effects both environmentally and on citizens, might be made unable to expand its land. We believe a proportionality test would have been more appropriate.

Overall, therefore, it is our opinion that a vote against the at-vote proposal is justified, given both its failures in regulating land reclamation and its excessively harsh attitude towards land reclamation.

Why was I tagged?!

Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams – which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes – and oft-ignored RMB messages.

The above tags were generated automatically by InfoEurope.

You can opt out of tagging by sending a telegram to the Office's WA Secretary or the Undersecretary for Communications. Current staffing information is located in the "STAFF" tab at the top of this page.
