This book critically analyses the evolution and theoretical underpinnings of environmental justice, as well as its growing recognition under international law and developing countries by drawing on key comparative insights from Africa (Nigeria and South Africa) and Asia-Pacific (India and Papua New Guinea). The book interrogates the evolving paradigm of environmental justice as an integral aspect of the contemporary discourse and praxis of sustainable development model. The philosophical underpinnings of justice are highlighted along with the global recognition of environmental justice in intellectual discourse. The core of the book engages with the application of the elements of environmental justice; substantive and procedural - access to environmental information, the right to participate in the decision-making processes and access to justice in environmental matters - to developing countries via the cross-national experiences four case study countries. By integrating these national and regional lessons, the book harvests rich theoretical and practical perspectives on the limits of the mechanisms for the recognition and enforcement of environmental justice in the developing world.
