Chapter Summary

The conclusion of multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) is one of the greatest achievements of the past few decades in the field of international environmental law. There are several ways in which the provision of technical and financial assistance plays a role as an ex ante means for inducing compliance. Treaties dealing with oil pollution provide one such example. Non-compliance procedures have been created within the framework of several MEAs. Provision of assistance to enable Parties to achieve compliance is typical in these new compliance procedures. One of the essential features of these mechanisms is the effort to ensure continuing cooperation between States, even in case of non-compliance by some Parties. In the field of dispute resolution, technical and financial assistance may be provided to developing countries to encourage these States to have recourse to an international third party body for the settlement of their disputes.
