International environmental institutions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


International environmental institutions fulfil a significant role in maintaining effective environmental governance. Governance suggests an evolving process that is representative of diverse interests and changing circumstances. The composition of international environmental institutions has developed and includes a vast array of disparate actors. A key challenge of effective governance relates to facilitating and coordinating cooperation to help provide solutions to environmental problems. Principal among the challenges is the growth of global environmental problems, the proliferation of multilateral environmental agreements and the limited means to coordinate solutions.
