Emerging Forces in Environmental Governance

Environmental governance is increasingly complex. Not only are nation states and international institutions major players, but NGOs, social movements, scientists, businesses and industry also have views and are involved in policy discussions. The pattern that is emerging is that groups of actors must now work together in order to facilitate changes in environmental policy on multiple levels simultaneously--international, national, regional, and local. This book describes the avenues in which these change agents operate and describes the different roles and functions that each plays in the policy and governance process.
