This chapter begins with a brief discussion of the lack of detailed exploration of the concept of environmental harm. There is, for instance, little practical significance in the notion that the polluter must pay unless it can be established precisely for what he must pay and exactly how much it will cost him. These are questions that international law does not appear as yet to have answered with any certainty, even where some obligation to avoid environmental harm can be established. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
