Product Description

This Law In A Nutshell: International Environmental Law introduces the relevant concepts of international environmental law, contemplates the socio-scientific evidence confronting lawmakers, and addresses the resulting corpus of substantive law. The expert authors cover international environmental problems such as population, biodiversity, global climate change, ozone depletion, Antarctica, toxic and hazardous substances, land and vessel-based pollution, transboundary water pollution, desertification, and nuclear damage.

This current edition offers a synoptic yet accurate account of the rapidly changing landscape of international environmental law. These developments include: The changing cartography of international governance created by the expanding role of environmental non-governmental organizations and multinational corporations in environmental protection; On-going developments in treaty regimes addressing greenhouse gases, biodiversity, toxic wastes, transnational rivers, the oceans, and international trade; The emerging new profile of sustainable development in light of the 2002 World Conference on Sustainable Development (WCSD); The doctrinal restatements of state responsibility and international liability by the International Law Commission; The growth of civil liability regimes in national jurisdictions offering remedies for international wrongs; The evolving responses to the continuing challenge of implementing international environmental law.
