In the decade between the Rio Conference and the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, sustainable development has become a universal watchword, and a catalyst for the reorientation of legal texts. Profound legal changes have been triggered by the transformation of socialist economies and the accelerating globalization of trade and economy. At the same time, recognition has been gained for the role of the law in achieving development and environmental objectives and in supporting good governance. This book reports and reflects on emerging trends and interesting experiments in the legal frameworks governing agriculture and natural resource management.
