This international journal is created to encourage the exchange of information and experience on all legal, administrative and policy matters relevant to the human and natural environment in its widest sense: air, water and soil pollution as well as waste management; the conservation of flora and fauna; protected areas and land-use control; development and conservation of the world's non-renewable resources. In short, its coverage includes all aspects included in the concept of sustainable development.
For more than three decades Environmental Policy and Law has assumed the role of the leading international forum for policy and legal matters relevant to this field. Environmental Policy and Law is divided into sections for easy accessibility. These sections cover the activities of the United Nations and its specialized agencies, other international developments, regional activities within the framework of European Union, AU, ASEAN, etc., and developments at the national level from all over the world. An important and distinctive feature is the publication of selected documents appearing with the minimum of delay, which are not easily accessible, such as the resolutions from non-public meetings of parliamentarians, guidelines or draft conventions not yet published or newly concluded agreements.
