International sustainable development law is found at the intersection of three principal fields of international law, each of which contribute to sustainable development. Since the call for a clarified and strengthened relationship between international agreements in the field of environment and relevant social and economic agreements in Chapter 39 of Agenda 21, the areas of intersection between international economic law, international law related to social development, especially human rights, and international environmental law have been growing. The scope of potential conflicts between international norms represented in treaties is limited to certain circumstances. A true conflict occurs where there is overlap ratione materiae, personae and temporis between norms, and one constitutes, has led to, or may lead to, the breach of the other.
