Environmental Damage in International and Comparative Law

This chapter examines environmental damage valuation in Brazil. Brazilian law allows for the use of five autonomous and immediate techniques, some of them general and direct, other special and direct, for dealing with environmental damage responsibility. These are rights of neighbourhood, extra-contractual civil responsibility based on guilt, objective civil responsibility under the National Environmental Policy Law, objective civil responsibility under the Consumer Defence Code in cases involving consumer relations, and special civil responsibility in the case of mining, forestry, or nuclear activities, as well as the use of toxic products in agriculture.

Keywords:   environmental damage, environmental damage evaluation, Brazil, Brazilian law, National Environmental Policy Law, Consumer Defence Code, civil responsibility
