This book investigates how constitutional environmental law might be implemented more effectively to protect the environment. It analyzes crosscutting themes (including climate change, the impact of conflict, and the need for rule of law) and investigates experiences in selected countries to draw lessons for how environmental constitutionalism can fulfill its potential.
