About this book


The development of national environmental policies is of great concern to governments, enterprises, NGOs and international organizations since it sets the structural conditions for economic globalization. The systematically structured reports of 17 countries permit a comparison of capacities for environmental policy and management on a global scale. The country reports inform about, inter alia, the most urgent environmental problems, national policies and institutions, and environmental proponents and opponents. The book is of relevance for experts in universities, business, governments, and administrations as well as non-governmental organizations.
