Gateway to information about environmental law
Gateway to information about environmental law is available on the Internet at www.ecolex.org. The world’s largest environmental law database has been developed by combining the legal libraries of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), IUCN - The World Conservation Union, and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). ECOLEX provides online access to over 100,000 legal references and is an essential resource for developing the necessary tools to promote environmental management. The information in the system covers treaties, national legislation, soft law and other non-binding policy and technical guidance documents, judicial decisions, and law and policy literature.
