Law and Sustainable Development Since Rio
Price: $ 32

The decade between the Rio Conference and the recently completed World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg was a period of intense activity in the reform of national and international laws. Sustainable development has become a universal watchword, and a major catalyst for the reorientation of legal texts. Profound legal changes have been triggered by the transformation of socialist economies and the accelerating globalization of trade and economy. At the same time, there has been a resurgent recognition of the critical role of the law in achieving development and environmental objectives and in supporting good governance. "Law and sustainable development since Rio" reports and reflects on the changes that have taken place and on emerging trends and interesting experiments in the legal frameworks governing agriculture and natural resource management. Individual chapters address legal trends in the subjects that are at the center of the sustainable development agenda, including: food, animals, plants, agrobiodiversity, water, fisheries, land, gender, forestry, wildlife and mountains. An introductory chapter and an afterword highlight cross-cutting themes affecting legal change in all these fields, and reflect on important methodological and conceptual lessons that have emerged in the field of law and development over the past decade.
