United Nations Environment Programme

This handbook is intended to enable national judges in all types of tribunals in both civil law and common law jurisdictions to identify environmental issues coming before them and to be aware of the range of options available to them in interpreting and applying the law. It seeks to provide judges with a practical guide to basic environmental issues that are likely to arise in litigation. It includes information on international and comparative environmental law and references to relevant cases. Judges in each particular country will supplement this overview with more detailed information drawn from national experiences, laws and traditions.

A Sustainable Future for the Mediterranean : The Blue Plan's Environment and Development Outlook
Benoit, Guillaume

This report constitutes an indispensable tool for each and every coastal country, the European Union and all those trying to build a Euro-Mediterranean zone of stability and shared prosperity.2 It presents a new analysis of the dynamics at work in the Mediterranean area, linked as far as possible with the social dimension. The approach highlights the relationships between development and the environment and focuses on the strategic priorities for the region. Six issues are analysed: water, energy, transport, urban areas, agriculture and rural areas, and coastal areas. All are subject to public policies and social practices that call for major changes if we want to maintain our vast natural capital, reduce risks and disparities, and get a genuine economic development process under way.
