Bibliography : p. 393-395
Throughout history, environmental damage has been an inherent element of any armed conflict, not necessarily linked to the use of specific weapons. The present chapter will deal exclusively with environmental damage arising out of the use of CBRN weapons and it does not aim at addressing all the problems related to environmental protection in armed conflicts. The aim of the present chapter is to understand the extent to which the rules on environmental protection in armed conflicts could provide a further layer of restrictions on the use of CBRN weapons. Moreover, the chapter addresses the relevance of international environmental law (IEL) principles that could provide a more detailed regulation of the different phases of a CBRN event occuring during an armed conflict.
