Environmental Courts & Tribunals: A Guide for Policy Makers

The objective of this UN Environment guide is to provide the most current, comprehensive, comparative analysis of ECTs available – a synthesis of the experiences, opinions and recommendations of leaders at the forefront of the ECT field. It is designed to be a helpful “roadmap” for policy makers, decision makers, and other stakeholders who are exploring how to improve adjudication of environmental and land use disputes, to make them – in the memorable words of Australian court law – “just, quick and cheap.” It presents an easy reference for those considering creating a new ECT or improving an existing one – to make it fair, fast, and affordable.
