5. Call for Abstracts: Chinese Journal of Environmental Law. The Chinese Journal of Environmental Law welcomes abstract proposals for a Special Issue on ‘Water Law as Environmental Law’. This special issue aims to deal with water law as part of the broad area of environmental law. It seeks to bring together a collection of articles that look at different aspects of this ‘green’ approach to international, transnational, regional, and domestic water law. Issues traditionally regulated by water law, such as water allocation, all have environmental implications. Environmental problems that water law seeks to address include water pollution, waste of water, water scarcity and drought, damage to aquatic biodiversity and freshwater ecosystems, and flood-risk management. For all details, see the website of the Chinese Journal of Environmental Law, under the tab ‘call for papers’ (deadline 31 July 2021).
