International Environmental Law - The role of youth

International environmental law is concerned with the attempt to control pollution and the depletion of natural resources within a framework of sustainable development. It is a branch of public international law - a body of law created by states for states to govern problems that arise between states, and in the transition to sustainable development, plays an important role in addressing specific environmental threats and for integrating long-term environmental protection into the global economy.
