Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this book provides ready access to treaties, conventions, legislation and practice concerning the International Environmental Law. A general introduction covers geographic considerations, political, social and cultural aspects of environmental study, the history, sources and principles of environmental law, environmental legislation, carbon credits and the role of public authorities.

The main body of the book deals first with laws aimed directly at protecting the environment from pollution in specific areas such as air, water, waste, soil, noise, and radiation. Then, a section on nature and conservation management covers protection of natural and cultural resources such as monuments, landscapes, parks and reserves, wildlife, agriculture, forests, fish, subsoil, and minerals. Further treatment includes the application of zoning and land-use planning, rules on liability, and administrative and judicial remedies to environmental issues and disputes. There is also an analysis of the impact of international and regional legislation and treaties on environmental regulation.

Its succinct yet scholarly nature, as well as the practical quality of the information it provides, make this book a valuable resource for lawyers handling cases dealing with and affecting international environment. Academics and researchers, as well as business investors, corporate houses and international organizations in the field, will welcome this very useful guide, and will appreciate its value in the study of comparative international environmental law and policy.
