Abstract

The political Rio 20 Declaration challenges lawyers and legal professionals around the world to think creatively about the legal preparedness for the green economy. To this end, this study focuses on highlighting the legal changes that are being adopted in Europe, at national and regional levels, to facilitate the transition to a greener economy. The purpose is thus to point out the challenges that domestic governments face in transitioning to a greener economy and to research the means by which these challenges can be met. This compendium gathers recent practices in legal and institutional reform that exemplify promising methods of addressing green economy measures.
