The Principles of Nigerian Environmental Law provides an outline of the fundamental principles governing the protection, conservation and sustainable utilization of the environment in Nigeria. It takes a comparative and international approach in analyzing and discussing the distinctive normative frameworks and toolboxes for environmental protection in Nigeria. Starting with a theoretical and jurisprudential examination of the term 'environment'; the book then moves to discuss the nature and scope of laws designed to regulate specific environmental problems in Nigeria such as water pollution, air pollution, marine pollution, oil spillage, gas flaring, climate change, stratospheric depletion of the ozone layer and transboundary movement of hazardous wastes. The book provides environmental stakeholders from all backgrounds including students, administrators, lawyers, government representatives, judges, analysts and pundits, a ready tool to digest, assimilate, understand and appreciate the legal and institutional framework for environmental regulation and protection in Nigeria. For anyone interested in learning about the importance of law in the protection of the environment, this book is a must-have.
