What does the future hold for the development of international environmental law in the Asia Pacific? This book addresses that question through a multifaceted examination of various aspects of environmental law in the states which comprise East and Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the island states of the Southwest Pacific, and occasionally the states of South and Central Asia. A treaties table at the end of the book includes most Asia Pacific countries, giving the reader a fuller picture of the environmental conventions.In addition to providing an overall view of international environmental law, this examination includes an in-depth look at such subjects as:the effect on the region of developing global, regional and subregional environmental law; the ways in which certain states and groups of states have responded domestically and within their own subregions to such developments;the preservation of heritage, biodiversity, and marine environment; and the relationship between trade and the environment. The book concludes by assessing the interaction between international and regional environmental law and turning to an examination of future prospects for the Asia Pacific.Through its thorough range of coverage, International Environmental Law in the Asia Pacific provides an illustration of the current state of development of international environmental law within the region as well as the forces shaping further development of international and regional schemes for environmental governance. In doing so, the book promotes long-term ecological, social, and economic sustainability.
