Introduction -- The patchwork of jurisdictions -- Institutions of international environmental governance -- International courts and environmental governance -- Transboundary environmental damage -- Freshwater resources and ecosystems -- Marine wildlife and ecosystems -- Public interest proceedings -- Jurisdictional coordination -- Fragmentation of international environmental law -- The future of international environmental litigation
International environmental law has come of age, yet the global environment continues to deteriorate. The challenge of the twenty-first century is to reverse this process by ensuring that governments comply fully with their obligations, and progressively assume stricter duties to preserve the environment. This book is the first comprehensive examination of international environmental litigation. Analysing the spectrum of adjudicative bodies that are engaged in the resolution of environmental disputes, it offers a reappraisal of their relevance in contemporary contexts. The book critiques the contribution that arbitral awards and judicial decisions have made to the development of environmental law, and considers the looming challenges for international litigation. With its unique combination of scholarly analysis and practical discussion, this work is especially relevant to an era in which environmental matters are increasingly being brought before international jurisdictions, and will be of great interest to students and scholars engaged with this vital field
