Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on certain general observations that reflect the worldwide development of Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (TEIA). It outlines the development of national EIA and discusses the limitations of national EIA legislation regarding TEIA. It then identifies the main arguments for developing TEIA systems. In view of the development of TEIA worldwide, the question whether TEIA should be considered an independent principle of international law is also dealt with. A comparison of the history and content of the TEIA systems also enables a consideration of some other general matters, including the question to what extent the TEIA systems reviewed derive from national EIA systems. Finally, the chapter discusses the future development of TEIA in developing countries and countries in transition, as well as in areas beyond national jurisdiction.

Keywords:international law; national EIA legislation; Transboundary Environmental Impact Assessment (TEIA)
