The development of modern environmental law has been one of the most remarkable exercises in international law-making. Although far more law and policy exists in this area than a quarter of a century ago, the global environment is in a much worse state: challenges remain in relation to the
poor health of the oceans, climate change, the growing loss of biodiversity and ecosystems, and the other effects of human mismanagement of our global ecosytem, including global pandemics. As conservation of the environment plays an increasingly important role within society, Birnie, Boyle, and
Redgwell's International Law and the Environment continues to be an essential read for students and practitioners alike.

Written by experts in the field, Birnie, Boyle, and Redgwell's International Law and the Environment places legislation on the protection of the environment firmly at the core of the text, while remaining rooted within the substantive law. The authors employ sharp and thorough analysis of the laws,
allowing them to share their extensive knowledge and experience with the reader. The authors provide a unique perspective on the implications of international regulation, promoting a wider understanding of the pertinent issues impacting upon the law.
