Chapter Summary

International water law has to take into account, among other factors, the geography, meteorology, society, history, politics, and economics of each region. The development of international environmental law led to the adoption of global rules and principles to govern the conduct of states in respect to the conservation and harmonious utilization of natural resources shared by two or more states. A holistic approach considers all water resources without regard to the existence of international borders. To combat deterioration in air quality, initial measures sought to disperse the pollutants through increasing the height of factory smokestacks. The most widely used and commercially successful application of plant biotechnology is the rapid and large-scale multiplication of plants through clones produced in tissue culture. All environmental milieu are regulated at the international level by global and regional treaties.

Keywords: biotechnology; environmental milieu; international environmental law; international water law; pollutants; water resources
