oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - Locus standi in environmental law
In conclusion, one must applaud the many positive elements encorporated in the Draft Bill on Environment Conservation 1987. In some respects one may notice certain similarities with the NEPA of the USA, for example, a distinct national environment policy (the first of its kind) in clause 3, the provisions regarding environmental impact assessments or reports (EIA) in clauses 22, 23 and 26, and the promotion and appreciation of public participation in environmental affairs, for example in clauses 2,5,6, 13, 15, 17,22 and 26. Although the Bill does not make provision for judicial control by the civil courts, a possibility exits that an additional section will be included in the final Act to regulate some form of judicial review by the courts.
