ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need of transforming environmental law. It has been stated that environmental laws and policies are governed by the pro-growth, free-market economic principles and will suffer the same magnitude of problems that the economy has suffered unless some fundamental changes will occur. Environmentalists all over the world are joining together to chart a rights based approach to environmental law.
