This chapter examines the public-participation movement in various protective sectors of environmental law. The movements to protect endangered species, biodiversity, and fragile ecological areas have both benefited from public-participation mechanisms and have helped to encourage further public-participation activities. This chapter considers the intersection of public participation and mining and energy resources development from the perspective of the principal biodiversity-related conventions. It focuses on the three global conventions of most direct relevance for this topic, namely, the CBD, Ramsar, and the WHC.

Keywords:   public participation, protected areas, endangered species, biological diversity, environmental law, CBD, Ramsar, WHC, energy resources development
