Abstract or Description

Modern biodiversity law emerged in the era of sustainable development. The widespread diffusion of this concept in international environmental discourse has contributed to re- shifting the balance of nature protection approaches from preservationist and intrinsic value philosophies to a renewed clearly anthropocentric centre of gravity. It has also helped transform a compartmentalized law of natural resources and nature conservation into a more holistic law of biodiversity. This contribution reviews how sustainable development has impacted the law of natural resources and nature protection. It then explores the practical reflection of sustainable development and its equitable dimensions in modern biodiversity law. It concludes with a brief assessment of the effectiveness of the biodiversity regime for achieving equity and sustainable development and identifies challenges yet to be resolved.
