The progressive degradation of the environment is one of the great challenges of our contemporary society. Processes such as deforestation, desertification, global warming as a result of greenhouse gases, water pollution levels, air, land and living things are some of the major disorders in the ecological balance between the unsustainable production and consumption models and environmental protection. The consequences of this environmental deterioration alarm the well-being and very subsistence of human beings.

Joan Pons and Jordi Recordà, members of INSTA, have written a chapter of this publication with a legal analysis of the entities of custody of the territory in Catalonia. It is an innovative contribution on the legal responsibility of entities, and the relationship with environmental policies.
