Chapter Summary

This section of the book Guide to International Environmental Law presents a list of words occurring in the book along with their relevant meanings. The book explains why and how the international system elaborates environmental obligations and monitors compliance with them. Since the middle of the 20th century, environmental protection has become a major concern throughout the world. Communication networks make possible more rapid knowledge of the existence and scope of environmental problems, but the widespread movement of persons and products may also contribute to those problems, for example, through the introduction of alien species and the spread of pollutants.

Keywords: communication networks; environmental protection; international environmental law; pollutants
