Latin American Environmental Policy in International Perspective

Synopsis

"In this volume, scholars and policymakers from throughout the hemisphere consider the domestic and international factors that shape the process of environmental policymaking in Latin America. Particular attention is given to domestic political institutions, growing domestic and transnational environmental activism, the role of the international development community, and the effects of sweeping neoliberal economic reforms on environmental policy. The volume also offers a set of comparative essays on environmental policy and politics in other regions of the world that demonstrates the common challenges confronting policymakers in many rapidly industrializing nations."
