Legal and Institutional Reflections

The thesis has searched for ways in which the law can help to extend the timeframe for environmental decision-making. A number of related legal and institutional reflections can be expressed. First, the principle of intergenerational equity is a hopeful addition to environmental law, because it presents a mechanism by which judges balance the interests of…

VII. Conclusion

Many obstacles stand in the way of long-term environmental decision-making. Individual behavioural biases, short-term financial incentive structures, the myopic pressures of the electoral cycle and the tendency of the common law to reinforce the (often short-termist) status quo all present significant barriers to the capacity of both private and public decision-makers to act in ways…

Implications – Independent Thinkers

This Chapter has been thorough in critiquing the Planetary Trust concept, both in theory and, using the analogy of the Murray Darling Basin Authority, in practice. It is only fair, therefore, to consider whether changes could be made to the Planetary Trust concept, and its practical incarnations, in order to improve their functionality as longterm…

Testing the Planetary Trust

Testing the planetary trust: ‘trustees’ of australia’s water Australia is an arid continent. The Murray Darling River Basin, which spans parts of the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria, is Australia’s most significant river system. The Basin hosts 39% of Australia’s total agricultural production and contains about 65% of Australia’s…

The Planetary Trust

The planetary trust: a flawed instrument of intergenerational equity Brown Weiss’s Planetary Trust concept is significant in that it presents a potential instrumental means for facilitating equity between generations. This section begins by outlining Brown Weiss’s Planetary Trust concept, setting it within the context of trust law more generally. It then presents a critique of…

VI. Investing in the Future

VI. Investing in the Future: the Story of a River Introduction This Chapter aims to conceptualise intergenerational equity in resource management as an issue of long-term investment. To do so requires a series of links and analogies that have only been hinted at in the relevant literature. Long-term investment is generally described within the context…

Intergenerational Versus Intra-Generational Equity

Whilst the notions of intergenerational equity and intra-generational equity are not always completely incompatible, the assumption that they are necessarily mutually reinforcing is certainly misguided. The notions of equity as between noncontemporaries and contemporaries can quickly be distinguished. The former requires thought about levels of savings of natural and other assets over time. The latter…

Implications

The cases described in the preceding section are significant to this Chapter less for their specific outcomes than for the contribution they have made to the elucidation of the principle of intergenerational equity under Australian law (and, potentially, to law internationally). In combination with several other cases and academic writing, these cases have contributed to…

International Legal Sources of Intergenerational Equity

An analysis of the legal sources of intergenerational equity should begin within the broader framework of international environmental law principles. Although the notion of intergenerational justice and the related principle of intergenerational equity are not concerned exclusively with environmental issues, the promotion of intergenerational equity does require, at a fundamental level, the appropriate management of…
