Environmental impacts of 5G

Estudio 30-06-2021

Telecommunication networks use radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to enable wireless communication. These networks have evolved over time, and have been launched in successive generations. The fifth generation of telecommunication networks will operate at frequencies that were not commonly used in previous generations, changing the exposure of wildlife to these waves. This report reviews the literature on the exposure of vertebrates, invertebrates and plants to radio-frequency electromagnetic ...

Based on Member States' reporting under the Birds and Habitats Directives, the backbone of European Union (EU) nature conservation policy, the latest assessment on the state of nature by the European Environment Agency shows that despite some encouraging developments, the overall picture remains bleak. Only 15 % of habitats and around 27 % of species protected under EU legislation have a good conservation status. An EU-wide assessment of terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems found that, overall ...

The diversity of detrimental factors impacting the European eel and the number of involved stakeholders pose a challenge for an effective stock management. Knowledge on the economic consequences of single management measures is required to better assess their implications for the involved sectors. This study summarizes the current knowledge on threats and provides economic data from hydropower generation, fisheries and aquaculture impacting the European eel in order to evaluate management measures ...

Durante el Pleno de enero, se espera que el Parlamento vote una propuesta de la Comisión para reestructurar el marco para las medidas técnicas en materia pesquera de la Unión, con el fin de establecer un mandato para las negociaciones del diálogo tripartito. Se espera que el nuevo marco simplifique la aplicación de las medidas técnicas y permita su adaptación a las peculiaridades regionales.

Technical measures in fisheries govern the different fishing practices that can be used to catch fish, as well as the areas and seasons for fishing. Aimed at limiting unwanted catches or at reducing the impacts of fishing on nature, EU technical measures in fisheries have, over time, developed into a complex set of prescriptive measures, which do not fully achieve their objectives. The European Commission finalised, on 11 March 2016, a long-awaited proposal to overhaul a number of existing rules ...

This study, commissioned by the Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs upon request of the Committee on Petitions, finds out that EU animal welfare policy and legislation has had much positive influence in the world, on the image of the EU as well as helping animals. However, most kinds of animals kept in the EU are not covered by legislation, including some of the worst animal welfare problems, so a general animal welfare law and specific laws on several species are needed ...

Las especies y los ecosistemas marinos de aguas profundas son especialmente vulnerables a la actividad humana. El Parlamento Europeo tiene ahora que culminar la adopción de un reglamento que, al mismo tiempo que se centra en las actividades pesqueras sostenibles de aguas profundas, impide que vaya a más la huella que estas dejan en la zona y protege los ecosistemas marinos vulnerables de aguas profundas. El Reglamento en cuestión es fruto de una larga negociación entre el Parlamento y el Consejo ...
