The new international environmental law, codified at the 1992 Earth Summit, calls for a synthesis of environmental protection measures and economic development activities, merging the demands of ecology, economic development, and equity. The Transition To Sustainable Development Law puts content into this concept, and seeks to infuse the main body of development law--property, contract, and tort--with ecological principles.
