Overview

This second edition of Philippe Sands' leading textbook on international environmental law provides a clear and authoritative introduction to the subject, revised to 1 January 2003. It updates existing topics and addresses important new topics, such as the Kyoto Protocol, genetically modified organisms, and foreign investment and environmental protection. It will remain the most comprehensive account of the international principles and rules relating to environmental protection and the conservation of natural resources. In addition to the key material from the 1992 Rio Conference and the 2002 Johannesburg Conference and subsequent developments, Sands covers topics including the legal and institutional framework, the field's historic development and standards for general application. This will continue to be an invaluable resource for students, scholars and practitioners.
