Description

Aligning global governance to the challenges of sustainability is one of the most urgent international issues to be addressed. This book is a timely and up-to-date compilation of the main pieces of the global environmental governance puzzle.

Essential Concepts of Global Environmental Governance synthesizes writing from an internationally diverse range of well-known experts. Each entry defines a central concept in global environmental governance, presents its historical evolution and related debates, and includes key bibliographical references. This new edition takes stock of several recent developments in global environmental politics including the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the UN Global Pact for the Environment attempt in 2017, and the 2018 Oceans Plastics Charter. More precisely, this book:



offers cutting-edge analysis of the state of global environmental governance;



presents an up-to-date debate on sustainable development at the global level;



gives an in-depth exploration of current architecture of global environmental governance;



examines the interaction between environmental politics and other policy fields such as trade, development, and security;



provides a critical review of the recent global environmental governance literature.

Innovative thinking and high-profile expertise come together to create a volume that is accessible to students, scholars, and practitioners alike.
