International Environmental Law Essay
8 Pages • Essays / Projects • Year: Pre-2021
Question Principle 7 of Rio Declaration on Environment and Development 1992 states: ‘States shall cooperate in a spirit of global partnership to conserve, protect and restore the health and integrity of the Earth's ecosystem. In view of the different contributions to global environmental degradation, States have common but differentiated responsibilities. The developed countries acknowledge the responsibility that they bear in the international pursuit to sustainable development in view of the pressures their societies place on the global environment and of the technologies and financial resources they command’. Does it imply that the more affluent North has a moral responsibility to assist the poorer South in achieving sustainable development? Do you think that North should reduce its own consumption in order to allow the South to consume a more equitable share of the Earth’s natural resources? Explain and justify your answer with relevant principles and references.
