Law And Energy Infrastructure Development In Developing Countries: A Case Study Of Nigeria And Ghana, Lanre Aladeitan Feb 2015

Law And Energy Infrastructure Development In Developing Countries: A Case Study Of Nigeria And Ghana, Lanre Aladeitan

Annual Survey of International & Comparative Law

The development of infrastructure to support optimal energy utilization is a key challenge in most developing countries. This challenge, and other socio-political issues, has caused several developing countries to lag behind on the path of economic development. Although the developmental challenges are multifaceted, this paper examines the role of the law in the promotion of energy infrastructure development, and the role that infrastructure plays in directing both the energy process and development, or absence thereof, in a developing country. This paper is primarily concerned with energy infrastructure areas that are in acute need of development and have very poor infrastructure …

Assessing The Impacts Of Climate Change On The Built Environment Under Nepa And State Eia Laws: A Survey Of Current Practices And Recommendations For Model Protocols, Jessica A. Wentz

Sabin Center for Climate Change Law

Federal agencies are beginning to incorporate descriptions of climate change impacts into environmental reviews for buildings and infrastructure, but there is no consistent methodology for evaluating these impacts and mitigating any foreseeable risks to the project or affected environment. This Article asserts that an assessment of climate-related risks and adaptation options falls within the scope of considerations that should be addressed under the National Environmental Policy Act and similar laws. It concludes with a set of recommended protocols for identifying the impacts of climate change on projects and their affected environment, evaluating physical and environmental risks, and selecting appropriate mitigation …

Water Rights, The Public Trust Doctrine, And The Protection Of Instream Uses, Richard C. Ausness Jan 1986

Water Rights, The Public Trust Doctrine, And The Protection Of Instream Uses, Richard C. Ausness

Law Faculty Scholarly Articles

Our society uses water for a variety of productive purposes, including domestic, agricultural, mining, manufacturing, and energy development. Most of these uses require physical removal of water from watercourses or ground water aquifers. Water can also serve useful purposes, however, when it remains a lake or stream. Flowing water helps to maintain water quality and furthers other uses such as recreation, aesthetic values, and ecological interests—referred to as “instream uses.”

Large quantities of water must remain in place to safeguard instream uses. At the same time, the increasing demands of consumptive water users are significantly reducing streamflows and lake levels …
