about this item

Environmental law, as it has grown and developed over the past 40 years, has been criticized by a number of agencies and organizations for not realizing as effective a system of environmental governance as is necessary. In other words, the outcome of that body of law has not lived up to its intent. Contributors offer solutions from a variety of perspectives for how environmental law can be enhanced to realize that intent. A sampling of topics includes: accelerating the evolution of environmental law through continuous learning from applied experience, the credibility of environmental impact assessments, the contamination and the polluter pays principle, legal obligations to consult, implementing international water agreements, and discussions on specific environmental circumstances such as Nova Scotia's experiment with using legislation to shore up environmental governance and a legal analysis of a collective action challenge in Lake Victoria. The book would serve well as a reference for policy makers and academics. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
