(p.170) Chapter 7 Environmental Principles Applied
Gulf War Reparations and the UN Compensation Commission

Peter H. Sand

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes the rules applied to environmental claims in comparison to the rest of the UN Compensation Commission’s (UNCC) legal framework. The UN Security Council Resolution 687 (1991) placed the considerations of the F4 Panel in the context of intergovernmental responsibility for wrongful acts that resulted from Iraq’s unlawful invasion and occupation of Kuwait. The compensation claims assigned by the UNCC Governing Council to the F4 Panel consisted exclusively of governmental claims, which includes the state’s allegations of suffering direct environmental damage or sustaining financial costs in providing assistance to affected geographical regions.

Keywords:   UN Compensation Commission, UNCC, environmental claims, UN Security Council Resolution 687, F4 Panel, Iraq, Kuwait
