Documents in International Environmental Law, Second Edition, is the companion volume to the second edition of Philippe Sands' Principles of International Environmental Law. It comprises a representative selection of international environmental treaties and documents, which are essential for anyone interested in international law in the field of environmental protection. This edition represents an up-to-date collection of the most important documents, and aims to make the text and the key information on the legal status of the various acts, including its parties where a treaty is concerned, easily accessible to students, academics and practitioners. Each document is introduced with a short Editorial Note, summarising the main provisions of the instrument and placing it in its wider context. Editorial notes are followed by information on the date of adoption/signature of the document, its entry into force and a list of the parties (if a treaty).
