Environmental Protection Law and Practice

by Adamu Kyuka Usman

This is basic text which offers a comprehensive approach to the consideration of environmental protection law and practice. Essential concepts and issues in Environmental science, including global warming caused by greenhouse effect, negative and positive feedback, the Gala hypothesis, the Chaos theory, environmental economics principles of cost-benefit analysis, tradable permits, and other topics, have been explained in such detailed but straightforward manner for the law student, law lecturer, legal practitioner and even the general reader, who may otherwise feel unfamiliar with some of these scientific subjects critical to appreciating the law in the area, to comprehend quite easily.

Of tremendous benefit of the legal practitioner, researchers and judges, this book also examines a lot of cases of environmental protection both in Nigeria and foreign jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, United States, India, the Philippines, and a host of other countries mostly within the common law tradition. The intention is to give life to the cold principles of environmental protection law by examining the cases in which environmental legal principles have been applied. It is hoped that environmental law students, law lecturers, legal practitioners and policymakers should find this book indispensible, and judges, too, in their adjudication of technical environmental matters.
