oa Comparative and International Law Journal of Southern Africa - African responses to environmental protection
After the withdrawal of colonial powers in the late 1950s and early 1960s and the establishment of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), the first African environmental convention was drafted in 1968. Although regional environmental development escalated, environmental issues did not seem to capture the interest of scholars and jurists on the continent or elsewhere. This article analyses various environmental responses from an African perspective, their characteristics, and their potential values.
