'This is a remarkable publication wherein some of the world s leading environmentalists discuss in an informed and transparent manner global, regional and national environmental challenges. The unique character of this book is that it links global issues of the environment (sustainable development; the creation of the World Environmental Organization) with national issues such as the right of nature in Ecuador. The book also presents a critical overview of the Rio+20 Conference. The particular feature of this outstanding book is its very analytical and straightforward approach to environmental issues adopted by its authors. Such a book is a must to all environmental lawyers, scholars and practitioners and in particular for a young generation of people who are interested in our planet.'
- Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary University of London
