oa Advocate - The Environment and the Interim Constitution

Volume 7, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1012-8743



In this article the author highlights a positive aspect of the Interim Constitution, namely the inclusion in the Bill of Rights of a number of sections relevant to environmental law. He argues that the environmental clause (s29) will give the Constitutional Court a basis for including environmental criteria in judicial decision-making. It will moreover provide a trigger to invoke other important clauses of the Bill, for example, the legal standing clause, the administrative justice clause, the access to information clause and possibly the property clause.
