dc.description.abstract Public Trust Doctrine (PTD) is one of major legal concepts that is emphasized by many environmentalists during the last few decades. The meaning of this doctrine is that, the legal title is vested in the state and the equitable title in the public. Thus the state is responsible as the trustee to manage the property in the interest of the public. On the other hand states are responsible for the protection of human rights. Every human being is entitled to right to development. But when states launch development programs they have to consider about the environmental sustainability under the millennium development goals defined by the United Nations and recognized by all states in the world. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the world's time-bound and quantified targets for addressing extreme poverty in its many dimensions. In this backdrop the research problem is how to balance right to development and right to environment in the discourse of sustainable development through the application of the Doctrine of Public Trust. The main objective of the study is to analyze the relationship between the Public Trust Doctrine and balancing right to the environment and right to development.
