Abstract: This collection of scholarly works provides insights into emerging developments in the field of legal governance of the environment. Environmental governance is increasingly concerned with far more than legal doctrine, though environmental law stands at the heart of good environmental governance. It is concerned with the totality of arrangements through which power and resources are deployed to protect and restore natural resources, and how the costs and benefits of this are allocated. As such, how the community exercises ts democratic rights; the ways in which government responds to the needs of current and future generations and balances the interests of the powerful with the powerless; the freedoms and responsibilities of commerce and the holders of property; and the ways in which laws and policies are informed by science and other perspectives are all important.
