Environmental Policies in the Third World: A Comparative Analysis

By O. P. Dwivedi; Dhirendra K. Vajpeyi | Go to book overview

characterized Chilean development strategies, the nature of their articulation by diverse social policymakers, composition of alliance groups, and the means deployed by these groups to influence environmental policies.

Janetti-Díaz, Hernández-Quezada, and DeWaard, in Chapter 9, National Environmental Policy and Programs in Mexico, analyze some of the crucial elements of the Mexican national policy on environment in general and the recent policy initiatives taken by President Carlos Salinas de Gortari in particular. They also discuss the role of nongovernmental organizations ( NGOs) in policy formulation, the impact of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) on both the Mexican economy and the environment in Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

The idea for this book began to take shape when the editors were organizing sessions on behalf of the Research Committee on Technology & Development (RC35) for the XV World Congress of the International Political Science Association held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in July 1991. Based on the support received during the World Congress, we invited scholars to join our project. Their enthusiasm and timely support, especially in meeting our various deadlines and incorporating editorial suggestions, were most gratifying. We thank them. The editors do realize that the breadth and depth of the subject matter demanded a coverage with many more nations and regions than what this volume could offer.

In our collaborative venture, several persons were helpful and deserve our heartfelt thanks: Dr. Karan Singh ( Delhi, India), B. D. Dua ( Lethbridge University, Canada), P. S. Tewari ( Madras University, India), K. D. Trivedi ( Rajasthan University, India), and V. S. Wilson ( Carleton University, Canada). At the University of Northern Iowa, we thank Dr. David Walker, Associate Dean of the Graduate College, for providing funding that helped during the final stages, and Dr. Nancy Marlin, Vice President and Provost, Academic Affairs, for creating a conducive environment for research and scholarship. In addition, Kate Bielenberg and Katie Jo Niess of the Political Science Department deserve our thanks for typing the earlier drafts of the manuscript. Special thanks to Jane Hunter for many hours of last-minute editing and to Steven Havercamp for careful and uncompensated research work.


NOTE
1.
In this book, the following terms have been used interchangeably: Third World, developing nations, South, and underdeveloped countries. Authors realize that with the disintegration of the Soviet Union, and the Eastern Block countries (regarded as the Second World) the term Third World has lost its relevant connotation; however, the term is still used in the absence of a better replacement.
