This chapter discusses the evolution of environmental laws and examines current international environmental law. It traces the primary sources of international law: (1) general principles of law, (2) customary law and conventional or treaty law, (3) analysis of legal experts who elaborate the principles, and (4) customs or treaty obligation through their commentaries. It discusses EIAs and ways to streamline the complexities of international environmental legal norms by recodification of the norms on a regional basis.
