Without the participation of developing countries, universal participation to deal with global environmental problems cannot be achieved. Yet this is a prerequisite for sustainable development on our interdependent planet. This study concentrates on showing what has been done on the international plane to promote the participation of developing countries and suggests some of the things which remain to be done.According differential treatment to developing countries to promote their participation entails the use of incentives in the international environmental agreements, such as different standards, longer compliance times, and increased financial and technical assistance. This book pulls together the thinking on this subject in one reference that makes it easily accessible for policymakers.
