This chapter provides an overview of the origins and development of international environmental law in the Americas. This area of law is of great relevance for a region where many mega-diverse countries are located, including biomes of global ecological significance. The rational use and conservation of natural resources in the Americas, ensured by the effective application of environmental laws and policies, are prerequisites for tackling global environmental challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss.
