About this book

Environmental policy is often practiced reactively with each crisis addressed as an isolated event. Focusing on development of proactive policies, Global Environment Policy: Concepts, Principles, and Practice provides the essential scientific and socioeconomic framework for formulating pragmatic and comprehensive environmental policies. It discusses topics of interest to both an American and international audience.

Beginning with basic concepts, it advances into successively more advanced principles, theories, and practices for developing and implementing comprehensive environmental policy solutions; Topics are introduced in a logical, yet connected, user-friendly manner.

Using practical case studies and examples, Global Environmental Policy: Concepts, Principles, and Practice illustrates both the power and limitations of theoretical approaches. It defines the scope and nature of the environmental policy problem, outlining its origins and evolution, and introduces the policy frameworks of the United Nations, European Union, and the United States.

Each chapter begins with a case study and ends with a problem set; the questions are designed to elicit practical and critical thinking. Global Environmental Policy: Concepts, Principles, and Practice ends with two capstone problems that exemplify nearly every major topic and aspect presented in this book. Upon completion, readers should possess the competency required to examine a real world problem, evaluate it in terms of the concepts, principles, and tools described throughout Global Environmental Policy: Concepts, Principles, and Practice, and develop a practical policy solution for resolving that problem.
