UN’s recommendation of good practices makes way into shaping environmental rule of law!

As a new era of environmental rule of law takes shape, UNEP’s new report provides recommendations for governments to navigate this evolving landscape.


The role of the United Nations in environmental law?

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading environmental authority in the United Nations system. UNEP uses its expertise to strengthen environmental standards and practices while helping implement environmental obligations at the country, regional and global levels.


Environmental Rule of Law: First Global Report of 2019

The UN Environment report found that despite a 38-fold increase in environmental laws put in place since 1972, failure to fully implement and enforce these laws is one of the greatest challenges to mitigating climate change, reducing pollution and preventing widespread species and habitat loss.  While there are still gaps in many of the laws, the substantial growth of environmental laws has been dramatic.

NAIROBI –  The Environmental Rule of Law: Tracking Progress and Charting Future Directions report provides a comprehensive assessment of developments since the release of the First Global Report on Environmental Rule of Law in 2019. Through collecting and analysing data from a survey of 193 UN Member States regarding their laws, institutions, civic engagement, rights and justice, the report highlights the most prevalent aspects of environmental rule of law across countries and tracks progress in addressing the triple planetary crisis.

The report makes four recommendations:

  • Standardize and track environmental rule of law indicators to allow governments, international organisations, and civil society to track progress, identify challenges and set priorities.
  • Develop guidance on environmental rule of law in emergencies and disasters, including conflicts and pandemics.
  • Integrate social justice in environmental institutions by adequately considering disproportionate impacts on certain populations, adopting proactive strategies to integrate social justice into environmental governance, and requiring private companies and NGOs to consider environmental justice in their work.
  • Establish a technology-policy interface, including systemic collaboration between the technology sector and environmental policymakers and enforcement agencies.
