Governing the Global Environment
The Globalization of the World Economy Series 12
The governance of the global environment is one of the major policy issues of the new century. Global environmental problems are increasingly important because of their impact on industrial activities, infrastructures, ecosystems, natural resources, biodiversity and human health. These problems can be managed and solved only through international co-operation, policy co-ordination, voluntary, widespread and equitable participation in the decision making process.
This authoritative new collection analyses these issues from several different viewpoints. Political scientists, economists and lawyers provide ideas and analytical frameworks to deal with global environmental problems. Applications to climate changes, biodiversity, acid rains and ozone layer depletion are also discussed, thus providing inputs to both academic researchers and policymakers.

But everyone with an interest will find something to suit them, whether they are mathematically inclined or not.' -- James Connelly, Environment Politics `Carlo Carraro has assembled a splendid set of papers by leading economists that address a key issue of our era: global governance with particular attention to environmental concerns. The depth and coverage of this volume will make it an invaluable source for us all.' -- Wallace E. Oates, University of Maryland, College Park and Resources for the Future, US
