Abstract

This Portal aims at providing existing information and material on international environmental law in an easily accessible manner. Built around a presentation of the Secretary-General’s report assessing possible gaps in international environmental law and environment-related instruments as mandated by resolution 72/277 is presented in an interactive manner for easy reference by members of the ad hoc open-ended working group and other interested stakeholders. Users can access complementary courses and material on environmental law, including foundational environmental law courses developed under the InforMEA portal and which have been expanded/updated for this portal. Users also have the opportunity to contact environmental law experts through the contact tab with questions related to the substance of the report or to the activities of the ad hoc open‑ended working group established by resolution 72/277 “Towards a Global Pact for the Environment”. Information is retrievable around a common set of concepts of international environmental law (Glossary) considered in the Report by the Secretary General and the deliberations of the ad hoc open-ended working group. The Glossary brings together a wealth of on-line information and documents developed by The United Nations Environment Programme over the years, information available from Multilateral Environmental Agreements including through the InforMEA Initiative, and its long-standing partners of the ECOLEX Portal the Food and Agriculture Organization and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.
