(p.257) 9 Conclusions
State Responsibility for Transboundary Air Pollution in International Law

Phoebe N. Okowa

Oxford University Press

This chapter emphasizes the major characteristics of the existing legal regime, and outlines the main shortcomings of international law in its response to transboundary air pollution, including the imposition of responsibility for breach. It argues that despite the general acceptance that transboundary air pollution requires detailed regulation through the adoption of specific treaty standards, it is nevertheless the case that the main treaties regulating transboundary air pollution, especially the 1979 ECE Convention and its Protocols, are particularly lacking in specificity.

Keywords:   transboundary air pollution, international law, breach, 1979 ECE Convention
