International Environmental Law and Policy

American University's Washington College of Law has produced a resource guide based on the university textbook International Environmental Law and Policy written by professors at the School.

The Home page contains links to the book's chapters and annexes. Each chapter refers to websites about treaties, government documents, NGOs, and international agencies. The site is a good resource for seeing what is being done (or not done) by the major UN system institutions, specialized UN agencies and programs, inter-governmental organizations, international financial institutions, and international dispute resolution fora.
