Gulf War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission

Julia Klee

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses how the UN Compensation Commission (UNCC) analyzed and quantified the environmental damage and depletion of natural resources from Iraq’s 1990 to 1991 invasion and occupation of Kuwait. In order to evaluate which claims deserved compensation and how much to award for compensation, the UNCC developed a review process to determine what damage to the environment was a direct result of the conflict. The limited scientific information about the damage and lack of background environmental data presented obstacles in the analysis of the claims.

Keywords:   UN Compensation Commission, UNCC, Iraq, Kuwait, claims, compensation, environmental damage, natural resouce depletion
