The adoption of a resolution of the UN General Assembly entitled "Towards a Global Pact for the Environment” in May 2018 marks the start of an important development that is taking place in the field of international environmental law. The present article seeks to investigate the following with a descriptive-analytical approach: The need to emphasize the imperative of environmental principles and norms; reasons for drafting an ecological framework and umbrella convention and analysis of the human rights approach to the treaty in light of the new procedure of the International Court of Justice. This article concludes that UN environmental reform is essential, and the adoption of the pact is an effective step in this regard. The establishment of a general and binding convention is indispensable. Finally, the anthropocentric approach of the document also emphasizes the interweaving of environmental rights and human rights that is not in contradiction with recent precedents of the International Court of Justice in its special approach to the environment per se.
