Book description: "The Global Environment in the 21st Century: Prospects for International Cooperation examines the roles of different actors in the formulation of international and national environmental policy..the authors examine the roles of state and non-state actors in safeguarding the environment and advancing sustainable development into the 21st century. Each of five sections focus on a different actor: states, civil society, market forces, regional arrangements and international organisations. By examining the functions and capabilities of each of these actors, the authors analyse their effectiveness and their relationship with other actors both within and outside of the UN system, providing a useful framework for understanding the multi-actor, multi-issue nature of international environmental policy." -- Publisher description.
