This study is an analytical and critical diagnosis of the penal system of protection of the current environment in Benin.
Benin, following the example of the other African countries, is confronted with a continuous degradation of the natural and environmental resources. Can the criminal law of the environment, just like the other legal disciplines, contribute effectively to the protection the aforementioned resources? This problem which underlays our research works raises certain number of legal concerns which determine the future of the criminal law of the environment.
The thesis concludes that in spite of the difficulties which mark out the implementation of the criminal law in the environmental protection, its effective application remains relevant.
