The central theme of this book is that natural resource use is a fundamental element of Aboriginal culture. Containing articles, commentaries and cases that identify key issues, problems and opportunities, the book explores the complex interrelationship between Aboriginal people, non-Aboriginal people and the land and its resources. Selected readings consider the recent expansion of natural resource utilization by Aboriginal organizations and individuals, and the historical context within which Aboriginal natural resource use has changed.

The management of natural resources is directly related to livelihoods for local communities, but is also intimately linked to broader national and regional economic development, as well as to political stability, peace and security. Natural resources and their effective management are necessary for securing the realisation of human rights. While there is some analysis regarding the emergence of specific relevant areas of human rights, such as the right to water, the right to food, or public participation, there is no systematic and comprehensive study on the potential role that human rights law can play in the management of natural resources. This book provides an in-depth analysis of these developments and how these could contribute to a more comprehensive human rights-based approach to the management of natural resources. In doing so, the author proposes a systematic analysis of the different norms, procedures, and approaches developed under human rights law which are relevant to the management of natural resources. As such, the text offers a human rights-based approach to the development of a legal framework for natural resource management, an area which is currently dominated by investment law and treaties concerning the use and exploitation of natural resources by States and private actors.

To address climate change fairly, many conflicting claims over natural resources must be balanced against one another. This has long been obvious in the case of fossil fuels and greenhouse gas sinks including the atmosphere and forests; but it is ever more apparent that responses to climate change also threaten to spur new competition over land and extractive resources. This makes climate change an instance of a broader, more enduring and - for many - all too familiar problem: the problem of human conflict over how the natural world should be cared for, protected, shared, used, and managed. This work develops a new theory of global egalitarianism concerning natural resources, rejecting both permanent sovereignty and equal division, which is then used to examine the problem of climate change. It formulates principles of resource right designed to protect the ability of all human beings to satisfy their basic needs as members of self-determining political communities, where it is understood that the genuine exercise of collective self-determination is not possible from a position of significant disadvantage in global wealth and power relations. These principles are used to address the question of where to set the ceiling on future greenhouse gas emissions and how to share the resulting emissions budget, in the face of conflicting claims to fossil fuels, climate sinks, and land. It is also used to defend an unorthodox understanding of responsibility for climate change as a problem of global justice, based on its provenance in historical injustice concerning natural resources.
