We live in a world where we are subject to environmental and economic effects that transcend national boundaries. Increasing globalization has led to a greater recognition of the need to address many of these issues through a global or a regional approach. Hence, International Environment Laws and their implementation are necessary to establish a consensus among the states and to realize the goal of sustainability. The broad category of "environmental law" may be broken down into a number of more specific regulatory subjects. While there is no single agreed-upon taxonomy, the core environmental law regimes address environmental pollution. A related but distinct set of regulatory regimes, now strongly influenced by environmental legal principles, focus on the management of specific natural resources, such as forests, minerals, or fisheries. Other areas, such as environmental impact assessment, may not fit neatly into either category, but are nonetheless important components of environmental law. Various international bodies organize conferences that assist decision makers with information, legal analysis, advisory services, legislative drafting, mentoring and capacity building at national, regional and global levels. They also provides the opportunity and the forum for governments, non-government organizations and others to network and to share information and discuss ideas.
