Internatinal Environment Law.
What are the legal as well as moral implications of the principle of equity? Do es it imply that the more affluent North

States shall cooperate in a spirit of global partnership to
conserv e, protect and restore the health and integrity ofthe Earth’s ecosystem. In view ofthe different contributions to global
environmental de radation, States have common but differentiated responsibilities. The developed countries acknowledge the responsibility
that they bear in tae international pursuit to sustainable development in view of the pre ssurestheir societies place on the global
environment and of the technologies and financial re sourcesthey command’.
