Environmental Policies in the Third World: A Comparative Analysis

Synopsis

This book analyzes environmental problems and policies in developing countries around the world and discusses new prospects for international cooperation and funding. It considers hard political choices, who is to blame for environmental decay, who should pay to overcome problems, and how they should be handled. Experts from different countries offer their perspectives about the role of multilateral agencies, the North-South dimensions of environmental problems from 1972 to present, and the experiences in India, China, Indonesia, Africa, Nigeria, Chile, and Mexico. A bibliography enhances this authoritative study for the use of political scientists, economists, and public administrators, for teachers, students, and professionals.
