It seems, however, that we come back to the relations between environmental policy and law. Earlier we recalled that policy measures are necessarily linked with law. At the highest level, law, as the expression of the common concern of a community, has to determine the values to be protected and, after deﬁning and adopting the policies that serve that objective, needs to fulﬁll the proposed tasks. Almost every paragraph of the Implementation Plan contains the word “policy,” which means that in reality its implementation involves legal measures.
39 While prevention still remains the general basis for environmental protection measures, the precautionary principle can be considered as its most developed form. Both principles seek to avoid environmental harm, but precaution is to be applied when the consequences of nonaction can be particularly serious, such as large-scale degradation of the environment or the extinction of a species. , the Bamako Convention on the Ban of the Import of Hazardous Wastes into Africa and on the Control of their Transboundary Movements within Africa, January 29, 1991, Art.
