One issue of concern is that despite relevant proposals from #ILC_2019 members, no draft principle was adopted on the responsibility of non-state armed groups for environmental damage. Given the increasing numbers of NSAGs this is a gap that should be addressed by states at #UNGA

In an interesting and progressive development the #ILC_2019 also found that pure environmental damage is compensable when caused by an internationally wrongful act in relation to armed conflict. #PERAC

The #ILC_2019 agreed on 8 new draft principles covering human displacement, corporate environmental conduct and post-conflict assistance. It reaffirmed rules on pillage and weaponising the environment, and affirmed the relevance of the Martens clause. #PERAC

UN lawyers approve 28 legal principles to reduce the impact of war on people and the #environment - our latest blog reviews the International Law Commission's adoption of its 8 year long study at first reading: https://t.co/yUToHAiXdT #PERAC #ILC_2019 #intlaw
