The total aim of the following study is to reveal the already conducted surveys by using the method of investigation case law not only under International law, but also under domestic level in order to mediate the rights of human ones, who were displaced because of environmental or/ and natural disaster. The first and foremost step should be taken by any country on municipal law rather than on international level alongside with their collaboration by making certain amendments in their regional documents regarding the legal status of environmental refugees. In all of the recent case law and provided data in this work, even when we deliberate appropriate strategy, it will reshape the understanding of international system of human rights and environmental law. We applaud the efforts of those seeking to widen the scope of studies, however, first and foremost should be taken on municipal law.
