This chapter offers a forward-looking legal research agenda for the next decade using an international sustainable development law approach. This sustainable development law agenda focuses on development and implementation of laws relevant to natural resources. To set the context, this chapter begins by reviewing why natural resources law and legal analysis is important now, highlighting the emphasis on natural resources at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development, the constraints to implementation of natural resources law and persistent trends of natural resource degradation. Then, the foundations for the proposed sustainable development law research agenda are further elaborated, by emphasizing the intersection of economics, society, and the environment and the need to consider, in an integrated fashion, the dynamics and laws in these three realms. In the final part, four key areas are proposed for the attention, analysis, and action of the legal research community.

Keywords:   legal research agenda, sustainable development law, World Summit on Sustainable Development, natural resources law, natural resource degradation
