ABSTRACT
The article examines the environmental rights and the obligations of Brazil in the inter-American human rights system. It states that the link between environmental rights and human rights are apparent to those who attended the U.N. Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, Sweden in June 1972. It finds that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights articulated broad range of state obligation despite the lack of environment references of almost all the American normative instruments. In addition, the Organization of American States (OAS) bodies globally insisted the procedural rights of information, access of justice, and public participation. Despite the disputes, OAS members cannot ignore the deteriorating condition of the environment and still fulfill their obligations.
