This chapter describes the UN Compensation Commission’s (UNCC) oversight of funds awarded to the governments of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iran, and Syria for environmental losses resulting from Iraq’s invasion and occupation of Kuwait. By declaring that the purpose of the environmental claim awards was to restore the environment, the UNCC’s Governing Council provided a remedy more similar to restoration than compensation. The UNCC’s approach to environmental awards implies that legal accountability of all states involves the safeguarding of common concerns to protect and conserve the Earth’s natural heritage.

Keywords:   UN Compensation Commission, UNCC, Iraq, Kuwait, environmental claim awards, legal accountability, natural heritage
