Title:Chinks the informal composite negotiating text? Some preliminary observations on the sovereign right to living and non living resources
Author:Kumar, U.
Periodical:Eastern Africa Law Review
Geographic term:Tanzania
Subject:territorial waters
Abstract:The article begins with the premise that wide consensus now exists on the establishment of an Economic Zone (a maratime area beyond and adjacent to the territorial sea of coastal State not exceeding 200 nautical miles from the appropriate baseline from which breadth of the territorial sea is to be measured). The discussion is built around the inforrnal composite negotiating text of the Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea (Geneva, 1975). The author regards the concept of Economic Zone itself and the regime it will give rise to as among the more promising achievements of UNCLOS III. The nature of the emerging regime of Economic Zone including the package of rights and obligations that are part of it are explored in depth. The discussion is related to the management aspects of Economic Zone which, basically, involves rational utilization of the living natural resources on sustained yield basis as well as the exploitation of non-living resources compatible with living ones. Focus of inquiry is Tanzania. Notes.
