Overview

The common denominator of modern environmental governance is co-operation between public and private parties. Of course, co-operation is nothing new in itself. The novelty lies in its planned form. In co-operative environmental governance the parties commit themselves, through a more or less binding agreement, to resolve specific environmental difficulties. When co-operation is embedded in environmental policy, it becomes a means to achieve the environmental objectives of the state. The essays which make up this volume explore this new option in environmental governance: the nature of the approach, the preconditions and its chances of success. They take an interdisciplinary approach to the task, analyzing theoretical issues and practical experiences in a number of countries.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'...Co-operative Environmental Governance provides a useful appraisal of the merits and limitations of existing partnerships and agreements. It deserves to be read widely and fills an important niche at a critical time when there is a great deal of interest in market-friendly, co-operative solutions to environmental problems.'
Environmental Politics, 9:2 (2000)
'This important collection of 12 essays deserves to be disseminated widely among environmental policy-makers as a matter of some urgency. The book makes an invaluable contribution to the understanding of this rapidly intensifying area of study and policy-making experimentation. The book itself takes a pan-European, genuinely multidisciplinary approach, with contributions from lawyers, economists, and political and social scientists.'
RECIEL, 9:2 (2000)
