1. International environmental law is a body of international law concerned with protecting the environment, primarily through bilateral and multilateral international agreements. International environmental law developed as a subset of international law in the mid-twentieth century. Although conservation movements developed in many nations in the nineteenth century, these movements typically only addressed environmental concerns within a single nation. A growing body of environmental scientific evidence from the 1950s and 1960s, however, illustrated global environmental stresses, along with the need for a multinational solution to environmental issues. Scientific research established that air and water pollution, overfishing, and other environmental issues often have effects that reach far beyond the borders of any particular nation. By the late-1960s, the international community realized that an international approach to environmental issues was required.

1. Throughout history, governments have passed laws to protect the environment. The first instance of legislation for environment preservation was noted in AD 80 in Rome where legislation was passed to protect the city’s supply of clean water. The next recorded legislation was in the 14th century England where burning of coal and the disposal of waste into waterways were both prohibited. In the 19th century, during the Industrial Revolution, the British government passed regulations to implement methods to reduce the effects of coal-burning and chemical manufacture on the environment. With the advent of the 20th century major conventions like the Convention for the Protection of Birds Useful to Agriculture of 1902, Convention for the Preservation and Protection of Fur Seals in 1911, and many more were concluded by different nations to protect and preserve the environment and its various assets.

1. International law consists of rules and principles governing the relations and dealings of nations with each other, as well as the relations between states and individuals, and relations between international organizations. Public international law concerns itself only with questions of rights between several nations or nations and the citizens or subjects of other nations. In contrast, private international law deals with controversies between private persons. These controversies arise out of situations which have a significant relationship to multiple nations. In recent years the line between public and private international law has became increasingly uncertain. Issues of private international law may also implicate issues of public international law, and many matters of private international law have substantial international significance.
