Abstract
 The article “Gas Flaring, Environmental Corporate Responsibility and theRight to a Healthy Environment: The Case of the Niger Delta” focuses onthe environmental impact of gas flaring by multinational oil companieson the Niger Delta areas of Nigeria.
 
 The writer, in this paper, examines the national legal framework for thecontinuation of gas flaring in Nigeria, the advancement of the concept of threat to right to life to include harmful activities of multinationalcompanies and how these companies can be held accountable for theenvironmental degradation caused by oil exploration activities in Nigeria. The writer also examines certain regional and international legaldocuments touching on the protection of the human environment anddraws a comparison between the Nigerian approach to the concept of right to life and how the concept is understood in other jurisdictions.Some valuable suggestions have been proffered using the approachadopted in certain jurisdictions as a panacea for strengthening the will of the Nigerian government in overcoming its weakness in the effectiveenforcement of environmental laws and policies.
