Disasters without borders: Transboundary effects of industrial accidents, the role of United Nations in international law.
Summary:
The natural environment affects and is affected by humans on a daily basis. The more human activities increase, the more the environment is affected and usually negatively. Air and water pollution, the destruction of flora and fauna, the loss of human life and property are some of the negative effects that human activity can have. The damage can be premature or long-term, local or cross-border.
There are many ways in which the environment can be negatively affected by human activity. In this paper, we will focus on industrial accidents and how they can negatively affect vast areas even beyond the borders of the country where they occurred. We will also look at the evolution of environmental protection legislation and what were the reasons that forced people to establish rules and restrictions on their activities.
In the first two chapters we will look at the basic concepts of disaster and more specific the technological disasters in which industrial accidents are included. Then we will talk about how man tries to manage the catastrophes that come from his own mistakes. We will look at the disaster management cycle that shows us that in addition to tackling disasters, it is just as important, if not more so, to prevent them. Finally, the development of the legislation concerning the protection of the environment from disasters arising from human activity as well as the role that the UN has played in it will be presented.
