At its seventy-first session in 2019, the International Law Commission provisionally adopted twenty-eight draft principles related to the protection of the environment before, during and after armed conflict. This article suggests that the International Law Commission ought to consider proposing a framework convention as the final outcome of this project, as this could result in better protection of the environment than draft principles.
