About this book

Politically, the world is composed of states but environmentally, it is made up of ecosystems. This disjunction makes addressing environmental issues at the global level both more difficult and more necessary. This book examines 4 approaches: international environmental cooperation; the relationship between the environment and security; the issues of science, uncertainty and risk; and the role of non-state actors.
