About this book

In order to advance sustainable development globally, it is indispensable to change the course and mode of conventional economic growth in the East Asian region, which has enjoyed rapid economic growth but faces environmental challenges. Environmental Governance for Sustainable Development gives attention to the evolution of multilevel environmental governance in the East Asian region, including both Northeast and Southeast Asia. It examines how effective emerging environmental governance and policy have been and addresses the underlying causes of local, national, regional and global environmental challenges.

Topical chapters include democratisation and its effect on decision-making processes, international environmental aid, economic analysis of carbon reduction policy, regional and global environmental regimes and subsequent new financial mechanisms, as well as hybrid systems of environmental governance that emphasize the role of the private sector and civil society in contributing to environmental governance. Special attention is also given to the regional economic and environmental regimes. Environmental Governance for Sustainable Development examines the advantages, challenges and solutions in addressing local, national, regional and global environmental challenges, and in changing the course of economic growth.
