Emergence of environmental jurisprudence in Iraq

Date of Release: 
Dec 13 2010

The 2009 Environmental Law (27/2009) replaces and repeals the earlier - and now obsolete - 1997 Environmental Law. The new law expands the role of environmental regulation in Iraq, specifically in the fields of oil and gas remediation, environmental impact assessments (EIAs) and penalties for non-compliance.
