About the product
Environmental law has been recognized as one of the most effective tools to translate the objectives of sustainable development into action. The dissemination of information on environmental law therefore takes on an urgent significance. In this context, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has produced this publication, which is designed to provide its users with important environmental law documents. It brings together key policy documents, texts of major legal instruments as well as information on national legislation. Those involved in the area of environmental law and policy, as well as its administration, will find this Handbook most useful.
