Abstract

Twenty years after the 1972 United Nations Conference on Human Environment (UNCHE 1972) – the first global conference on international environmental protection – the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED 1992) in Rio de Janeiro allowed the international community to reiterate its commitment to enhanced co-operation in order to address a series of imminent environmental threats. Written in the run-up to Rio+20, this book is a valuable addition to the growing list of textbooks on international environmental law. It not only provides an insightful account of the current state of the regime and the key challenges faced by it, but also makes interesting recommendations in order to address them. The book is comprised of seven parts. The first, introductory part provides an overview of the historical development of the international environmental law framework. Within this context, four distinct phases are identified and their main characteristics succinctly analysed. Subsequently, the second part discusses the principal concepts of international environmental law (the ‘no harm rule’, ‘precautionary action’, the ‘polluter pays’ principle, ‘common but differentiated responsibilities’ and ‘sustainable development’). Accordingly, the context of these concepts, the obligations (both substantive and procedural) associated with them and most importantly their legal
