Summary/Abstract: In just a few weeks, the world order has shifted to another logic, that of the threat from an invisible enemy, which is not a state factor. From a geopolitical point of view, states accept the existence of systemic consensus levels, but in the face of this threat the only solution was to declare a state of emergency, followed by a state of alert, bringing increasingly drastic measures in response to the biggest sanitary crisis in the last 100 years. The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the worst challenges the world has ever faced. In addition to the cost of living and the deep health crisis, the world is experiencing an economic downturn that will have a serious impact on the well-being of a large part of the population in the coming years. States had to reform their economic governance in the wake of the pandemic crisis. With regard to the impact on environmental law, we must draw attention to the facts resulting from the government rules imposed. The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the administration of environmental law can be exemplified by the temporary relaxation of the application of environmental regulations and fines.
