About this book

We live in an era of human-dominated ecosystems in which the demand for environmental governance is rising rapidly. At the same time, confidence in the capacity of governments to meet this demand is waning. How can we address the resultant governance deficit and achieve sustainable development?

This book brings together perspectives from economics, management, and political science in order to identify innovative approaches to governance and bring them to bear on environmental issues. The authors' analysis of important cases demonstrates how governance systems need to fit their specific setting and how effective policies can be developed without relying exclusively on government. They argue that the future of environmental policies lies in coordinated systems that simultaneously engage actors located in the public sector, the private sector, and civil society.

Media reviews

'This volume is a major contribution to the development of an integrated framework for the study of governance. It very effectively demonstrates how perspectives and models from several disciplines can be combined and integrated to yield new insight. We had better take notice!' Arild Underdal, Professor of Political Science, University of Oslo
