The International Environmental Agency and the International Court of the Environment
The idea of an International Environmental Agency and of an International Court of the Environment originated from the widespread conviction that in order to ensure the full and free exercise of the “right-duty” to the environment inherent in all human beings, either existing international institutions must be strengthened or new institutions created. By according standing to the individual, the International Court of the Environment would protect the right, including the associated procedural rights to environmental information, participation and access to justice.
