Global Environmental Governance
Global environmental negotiations on issues such as climate change, biodiversity and desertification often seem to be far removed from the everyday reality of more pressing environmental problems like pollution. Even environmental groups sometimes underestimate their importance. As a result, decisions taken by government representatives often go unnoticed and undebated. To raise the awareness of environmental governance, the Centre for Science and Environment's Global Environmental Governance unit will bring you this column in alternate issues of Down To Earth . We hope you find it useful. Comments for further improvement are welcome.
