About this book

As the process of globalization continues, and power imbalances between decision-making institutions become increasingly apparent, the need for a critical assessment of the way in which we manage our interaction with the natural environment becomes ever more urgent. Good governance was identified at the World Summit on Sustainable Development as a critical factor for ensuring successful sustainable development.
This book builds on the briefing papers which were presented at the Summit, taking further the discussions of the WEHAB agenda (Water, Energy, Health, Agriculture and Biodiversity - the five international priority sectors highlighted by Secretary General Kofi Annan). This is a unique offering on the role and reform of global governance institutions and processes, raising issues which have been previously neglected in international discussions.
