This unit examines the way in which the international community is tackling existing and future environmental problems- including ozone layer depletion, climate change, destruction of biodiversity, heritage conservation and disposal of hazardous waste. International and local obligations in respect of world heritage sites and climate change will also be examined. The development of international environmental law policy will be looked at as well as Australia's high profile in international negotiation on environmental matters.
