Overview

This book examines the trust concepts and institutions which may be employed to ensure that a healthy environment is passed onto future generations. Following initial consideration of the desirability of using the private law mechanism of the trust, and trust funds, for environmental purposes, the book examines the domestic law concepts of private, charitable and public trusts in an environmental context. Attention then turns to the development of the trust concept on the international law plane, with particular focus on the novel concept of an intergenerational trust. Embodying the legal articulation of sustainable development and embracing both intra- and inter-generational equity, it is this form of the trust concept which has the greatest resonance for international environmental law." "This book will be of particular interest to academics, students and practitioners of international, comparative and national environmental law and politics.
