International law on sustainable development is evolving at a rapid pace, as are international laws in the fields of economic and social development, and environmental protection. New treaties are being negotiated and ratified, customary principles are in the process of recognition, international organizations are brokering agreements between states on priorities and action. In the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, the 1997 Earth Summit+5 Special Session, and 2002 World Summit for Sustainable Development (WSSD), and in the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development, concerns have been raised that perhaps international law has moved too far ahead of real progress on the ground. This chapter focuses on ways to address these challenges. It presents an analysis of the clarified global sustainable development governance system that emerged in the 2002 WSSD negotiations, and, with Salim Nakhjavani, an analytical survey of innovative international approaches to compliance-building in sustainable development law.

Keywords:   international law, sustainable development, Rio Earth Summit, World Summit for Sustainable Development, sustainable development governance system
