Environmental Damage in International and Comparative Law

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses environmental damage remediation in the Caribbean region. It argues that Caribbean jurisprudence appears to be at a crossroads on the issue of valuation of ecological damage. Traditional approaches which omitted the environment from economics are now being challenged by several legislative provisions and administrative opportunities that allow for the accounting of ecological damage. From this perspective, it appears that the integration of environment and economics is a done deal. The only remaining question is the speed in which this recognition will take hold in those responsible for statutory interpretation and administration, and the manner in which integration will proceed.
