 ENVIRONMENTAL PRESERVATION DURING
     ARMED CONFLICT AND THE ROLE OF
     INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW
                  Bahadar  Ali', Parveen Gui2
ABSTRACT
It has been duly argued that a step change is required in the delivery
of sustainable goals as how the International Community must deal
the environmental dimension of an armed  conflict. The resolution
will be a starting point of a long and overdue debate and its great
outcome might be that it could mark a moment where environmental
protection at the times of an armed conflict might step-out from legal
seminars into the political arenas. War, migration and environment
are interconnected and interrelated, just as the horror of war often
results in human migration and environmental degradation; hence it
puts a great impact on the surrounding ecosystem as well. This nexus
is very complex and requires to be dealt in a holistic way. Indeed,
the armed conflict can have devastating consequences for the people
and  the environment. War is incredibly complex and is associated
with military strategy which can affect wildlife and people through
very diverse pathways. This  theme suddenly arose  in 1960-70s
although it is much older topic then that, it arose in the Vietnam
conflict it came in our minds in that conflict very vividly, it came
again in 1991  in Saddam's oil leakage in the sea which caused
almost irreparable loss to marine life.
Keywords:  Humanitarian Law,  Armed  Conflict and Environmental
Protection.
