In a relatively short time the concept of “sustainable development” has become firmly established in the field of international law. The World Commission on Environment and Development concisely defined sustainable development as follows: “development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. This definition takes into account the needs of both the present and future generations as well as the capacity of the earth and its natural resources which by clear implication should not be depleted by a small group of people (in industrialized countries).
The aim of this book is threefold : to review the genesis and to clarify the meaning of the concept of sustainable development, as well as to assess its status within public international law. Furthermore, it examines the legal principles that have emerged in the pursuit of sustainable development. Lastly, it assesses to what extent the actual evolution of law demonstrates the balance and integration with all pertinent fields of international law as urged by the Rio, Johannesburg, and World Summit documents. This is the second volume in the Hague Academy of International Law Pocket Book series; it contains the text of the course given at the Hague Academy by Professor Schrijver.

Cet ouvrage répond à trois objectifs : examiner la naissance du concept de développement durable, clarifier sa signification et évaluer son statut dans le droit international public. Il examine également les principes juridiques nés de la poursuite du développement durable. Enfin, il examine l’évolution actuelle du droit par rapport aux exigences énoncées à Rio, à Johannesburg et au cours du dernier sommet mondial en ce qui concerne l’intégration du concept de développement durable dans tous les domaines pertinents du droit international.

Interuniversity Commission for the Revision of Environmental Law in the Flemish Region
On 5 July 1989 the Flemish government adopted the decision to set up an Interuniversity Commission for the Revision of Environmental Law in the Flemish Region. The task of the Commission was to `compile a draft Proposed Outline Decree relating to environmental protection, and to make the necessary recommendations to improve the effectiveness of environmental protection law'. This book, which is sponsored by the Flemish government, offers the English translation of the Draft Decree and is accompanied by a detailed analysis.
The draft is an attempt to achieve a comprehensive codification of Flemish law on environmental protection. The object is to achieve a systematic body of law comprising all the rules in this area of the law, on the basis of a clear notion of the objectives and instruments of environmental policy.
The book has been published in conjunction with the proceedings of the Conference on Codification of Environmental Law that was organised on the occasion of the presentation of the Draft Decree to the Flemish government.
