The Third World in Global Environmental Politics

Synopsis

"Both the North and the South have significant stakes in the global environment, but they bring differing interests and agendas to the bargaining table. An inequitable global economic system and the internationalization of economies have reduced Third World countries' control over the disposition of their resources and affected their strategies in global environmental negotiations. Focusing on these issues, Miller traces the efforts of developing countries to influence evolving environmental regimes. Negotiations regarding hazardous waste trade, biodiversity, technology transfer, and atmosphere and climate serve as case studies." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
