In the 50 years since the creation of the UN, international law has expanded in scope and undergone significant changes. Among these changes is the development of international environmental law. This branch of law has also developed from a purely environmental form to a more dynamic system which seeks to advance the process of human development based on sustainability. This book discusses the development of environmental law at both national and international levels in the direction of sustainable development. Included are a collection of articles written by legal authorities on a range of contemporary issues in the field of environmental law. It examines UNCED, especially Agenda 21, and seeks to provide pointers to the development of environmental law for sustainable development in the post-Rio period, based on empirical studies. It also provides an intellectual input for the advancement of this process.
