This book is the outcome of the global consultation on the development and enforcement of international environmental law, with a special focus on the preservation of biological diversity. More than 250 experts on international environmental law and representatives of the global environmental movement collaborated in the drafting of a list of recommendations and conclusions. This list was then communicated to the delegates at the Third Preparatory Committee meeting for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development.
