Environmental law, evaluated across nations through the techniques of comparative law, is both a foundation for sustainable development in terms of Agenda 21 and serves as an indicator of the success or failure of a nation's measures to attain or maintain sustainable development. The systematic analysis of environmental law in this way is still in its infancy, and much more attention has been devoted to international environmental law. This is partially because it is difficult to know how to compare Environmental Law and where to find it in different jurisdictions. By clarifying the processes of comparative environmental legal study, the objectives of sustainable development can be materially advanced.
