The article examines enforcement of the environmental laws of Israel and of the United States. It concentrates on provisions for enforcement of the laws by government authorities -- that is, either by administrative authorities or by the courts at the request of an administrative authority. Environmental laws in many jurisdictions may also be enforced by private actions. These private enforcement actions are not addressed specifically in this article, although much of what is said is also applicable to such actions.
