Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of the book Protected Areas and International Environmental Law. The book helps with the creation of more internationally protected areas, and ensures the effective conservation of those which already exist. This reflects a realization that the international framework by which this objective may be achieved is very difficult to navigate due to its fragmented and ad-hoc nature, and what may an increasing antipathy towards protected areas under international or regional auspices. The book is written as a map, by which many of the difficulties are bypassed. The details of the map reflect one of the richest areas of international environmental law, with decisions and jurisprudence on international environmental matters going back over three decades. Incredibly, many of these details, to date, have been near invisible outside of each solitary regime.
