This chapter talks about the experience of the UN Compensation Commission (UNCC) with environmental claims and explains how an environmental claim is different from other claims in a claims process. It implies that an effective claims process for the environment requires a shift in perspective from the classic interstate viewpoint to one that focuses on the interest of relevant communities in the health and sustainability of a damaged environment.

Keywords:   UN Compensation Commission, UNCC, environmental claims, claims process, health, damaged environment
