Available / dispatched within 1 - 4 weeks
The Caribbean faces environmental problems suffered throughout the world, but also a unique set of challenges. The petroleum and bauxite industries and tourist trade have traditionally gone largely unregulated in the region, threatening pristine coasts and scarce natural resources. Now, as the region seeks to improve management and regulation, a clear guide to Caribbean environmental law is desperately needed. Principles of Caribbean Environmental Law provides that resource. The book explores international environmental law as it relates to the Caribbean, administrative law, and the common law of property and torts. It addresses issues from town planning to pollution regulation to waste management. And it examines marine and coastal governance: particularly critical to an economy built on beach tourism. This volume will be an indispensable resource for anyone concerned with the future of the Caribbean's natural landscape.
