The purpose of this book is to assess the development of international environmental law in the Asia Pacific. Consideration is given to the impact upon the region of global, regional and subregional environmental law. An assessment is undertaken of how certain states, and groups of states, have responded domestically and within their own subregions to these developments. The Asia Pacific is defined as essentially the states which comprise East and Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the island states of the Southwest Pacific. Occasional consideration is also given to the states of South and Central Asia. The book commences with an overview of international environmental law, the role of international organizations, and the development of regional environmental law. Consideration is then given to a number of prominent sectoral areas including heritage, biodiversity, marine environment, climate change, and the relationship between trade and the environment. A study is then undertaken of the influence of international environmental law in a number of states and subregions within the Asia Pacific.
