This chapter aims to provide an overview of the development of procedural environmental rights, and review the current interpretation, approaches and techniques of procedural rights in international and national laws. In the absence of any global framework treaty regulating environmental rights, this chapter examines a number of human rights and environmental conventions in international and regional law to identify the nature and scope of procedural environmental rights. The discussion then concentrates on procedural techniques and mechanisms available at the national level and explores trends of procedural rights over the last decade.
