about this item

International environmental agreements provide a basis for countries to address environmental problems on a global scale. However, countries are heterogeneous with respect to their economic structures and to environmental problems they encounter. Therefore, economic externalities and international environmental conflicts are common and cause problems in implementation and compliance with international agreements.

This book illuminates those issues/factors that might cause some countries/firms to take different positions on common problems. In other words, the book explores why international environmental agreements deal with some problems successfully but fail to deal with others.

The chapters in the book address issues that are global in nature, such as: transboundary pollution, provision of global public goods, individual preferences of inequality-aversion, global cooperation, self-enforcing international environmental agreements, emission standards, abatement costs, environmental quota, technology agreement and adoption and international institutions.

This book examines the necessary conditions for the improved performance of international environmental agreements, how cooperation among countries can be improved and the incentives that can be created for voluntary compliance with international environmental agreements.
