Abstract

This paper explores the perspective of developing nations in relation to the goal of an international forests convention. The author focuses on the concepts of permanent sovereignty over natural resources and the right to development as encapsulating developing country concerns, and considers how these concepts might be incorporated into an instrument that would provide a meaningful response to the challenge of protecting the world’s forests.

Keywords: Developing countries, Forests, International Environmental Law, Permanent sovereignty over natural resources, Right to development
