Abstract

This article describes the scope of authority of the UN’s Security Council in relation to international environmental decision-making and enforcement. It explains that environmental issues, especially how to allocate scare natural resources, will be an eminent issue on the future international agenda. As such, the Security Council is most apt to address these concerns internationally, despite problems relating to the veto, Council membership, and fiscal constraints.

Keywords: international law, environmental law
