There is an observable increase in conflicts throughout the world between the demands of economic development, the environment, and human rights. The frequency of these disputes is linked to current global patterns of natural resource degradation, over-consumption, inequitable distribution of resources, and poverty. Respect for human rights, environmental protection, and economic development are complementary rather than unrelated or opposing objectives. Measures to address them require balanced, integrated approaches. “Sustainable development” can provide new insights and solutions, guiding relationships at the interstices of these three systems. This book seeks to advance the understanding, development, and implementation of international sustainable development law. It has two principal aims. Firstly, it seeks to advance the understanding of sustainable development by providing a discussion of international law in this area. Secondly, it aims to strengthen the implementation of sustainable development law.
