International Environmental Cooperation: Politics and Diplomacy in Pacific Asia

Synopsis

Brings together innovative and insightful studies of international environmental politics in this increasingly critical part of the world. The first section of the book examines many of the issues and actors impacting international environmental co-operation, highlighting important themes such as co-operation between developed and developing countries, international justice, and regional environmental security. This section also illustrates key features of specific multilateral environmental agreements and the competing interests of important national bodies, international organisations, multinational corporations, and non-governmental entities. The second section focuses on environmental diplomacy and regime-building in Pacific Asia, examining issues such as acid rain, nuclear waste, deforestation, and conflict over regional seas. Contributors from Asia, Europe, and North America bring an international perspective to questions of environmental cooperation. INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL COOPERATION provides policymakers, citizens, scholars and students with essential information for understanding and addressing some of the world's most significant environmental problems.
