About this book

A detailed critique of the main initiatives undertaken by national governments to deal with the threat of environmental degradation.
`Those of us who watched the process have said that the Earth Summit has failed....Multinational corporations, the United States, Japan, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund have got away with what they always wanted...the Summit has ensured increased domination by those who already have the power.' - Wagaki Mwangi, Kenyan, Youth delegate to the Earth Summit.
