This book is dedicated to the memory of Edward Ploman

Edward Ploman, known to colleagues and friends as Eddi, served as the Vice-Rector of the Global Learning Division of the United Nations University from 1982 to 1986. He was keenly interested in global environmental issues and in the role that international law could play. At the time of his death, he was a member of the group contributing to this book. The draft of his contribution to the book is contained in appendix A.
