In short, the major problem lies in governance and rule of law.Like any other policy question, if rule of law is absent, environmental governance will be arbitrary, discretionary, subjective, and unpredictable.The UNEP has been the first global institution to recognize the concept of environmental rule of law at its first universal session in 2013 . This is considered the first internationally negotiated document to establish the term "environmental rule of law".Another global mechanism is the Global Judicial Institute for the Environment, which plays a significant role in supporting the application and enforcement of the environmental rule of law.To conclude, Lebanon shares global concerns around the sustainability of the environment and hence needs to reinforce this marriage and incorporation between legal frameworks of procedural and substantive rights and obligations and the principles of ecological sustainable development.This conceptual integration between the democratic and legal concept of the rule of law and environmental sustainability is the only way to hinder our current environmental challenges and maintain the wealth of the next generation.
