Open Access research shaping international environmental governance...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content exploring environmental law and governance, in particular the work of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) based within the School of Law.

SCELG aims to improve understanding of the trends, challenges and potential solutions across different interconnected areas of environmental law, including capacity-building for sustainable management of biodiversity, oceans, lands and freshwater, as well as for the fight against climate change. The intersection of international, regional, national and local levels of environmental governance, including the customary laws of indigenous peoples and local communities, and legal developments by private actors, is also a signifcant research specialism.

Concerning the successful business competence, strategic planning should be enhanced considering assets availability by involving maintenance and reliability operational aspects. The INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) FP7 EU funded research project aims to tackle the issue of ship inspection, identification of high-risk ships, providing access to information related to ship surveys and incorporate enhanced and harmonized cooperation of maritime stakeholders in order to avoid ship accidents, promote maritime safety and protect the environment. The current research consists of machinery and equipment specifications and stakeholders’ data requirements. Focusing on the methodology perspective, a Machinery Risk Analysis (MRA) model is introduced. All progress and methodology development takes place in Java programm ing language. Overall, the outcomes of this study demonstrate the reliability performance of marine machinery components. Future development include dynamic failure rate variation through time, probabilistic model’s sensitivity analysis and components’ and systems’ interdependencies in a user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) design.
