Overlapping International Disaster Law Approaches with International Environmental Law Regimes to Address Latent Ecological Disaster, in The Role of International Environmental Law in Disaster Risk Reduction
In The Role of International Environmental Law in Disaster Risk Reduction, expert authors from four continents offer perspectives on the growing intersection between environmental law and disaster risk management. Chapters discuss the potential for retasking environmental law tools and principles for purposes of mitigating the harms of potential disasters, including those exacerbated by climate change, and approaches for linking institutions and approaches across the environmental, climate adaptation and disaster risk management fields internationally. This book illustrates the blurring distinction between natural and man-made disasters and the consequences for legal norms and practice in the formerly distinct areas of international environmental law and international disaster law.
