About this book

Foreword by Professor Michael J. Chadwick, Director of the Stockholm Environment Institute
Two years of intense and often dramatic negotiations culminated in the signing of a Framework Convention on Climate Change at the Earth Summit in 1992. This book reconstructs the dynamics of those negotiations, based on eye-witness accounts. The main contributors have been selected to reflect the perspectives of the most important interest groups and institutions involved in these negotiations and include the OECD, oil importing developing nations, private industry and NGOs.
