Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law


This survey indicates that no treaty has been concluded to deal with environmental issues comprehensively. No treaty states basic principles which States would be called upon to observe with respect to the various environmental problems. However, some efforts in this direction are now underway as noted in the concluding section of this paper. The conclusion discusses the current drafts of such general principles as rights and obligations of States in the field of the environment, including specific reference to the question of the environment and armed conflict.
