Because environmental problems do not respect borders, their solutions often require co-operation among states. The contributors to this book examine how international environmental agreements are put into practice. Their main concern is effectiveness - the degree to which such agreements lead to changes in behaviour that help to solve environmental problems. Their focus is on implementation - the process that turns commitments into action, at both domestic and international levels.;The book is divided into two parts. The first part discusses at international level systems for implementation review, through which parties share information, review performance, handle noncompliance and adjust commitments. The second part looks at implementation at the national level, with particular attention to participation by governmental and non-governmental actors and to problem states with economies in transition.
