Abstract

Land-based sources of pollution are estimated to be the source of approximately eighty percent of all marine pollution. In Protecting the Marine Environment from Land-Based Sources of Pollution: Towards Effective International Cooperation, Daud Hassan outlines the major sources of Land-Based Sources of Marine Pollution (LBSMP), examines the current legal framework for control of LBSMP, and highlights the obstacles to creating more effective control measures. Additionally, Hassan presents a case study focusing on LBSMP control in the Bay of Bengal region and then concludes with a recommendation for the creation of a global treaty to more effectively address the impacts of LBSMP on the marine environment.

Keywords: treaty, pollution, marine, international
