Previously published between 1985 and 2002, the 28 papers that Carraro (econometrics and environmental economics, U. of Venice, Italy) collects here address three major issues related to the effort to manage global environmental problems. Contributions examine a framework of sustainable development in terms of coalition formation theory; explore the design of institutions and policy rules that will minimize incentives to free ride in such areas as global warming and ozone depletion; and discuss applications related to climate change, the ozone layer, biodiversity, and acid rain.

Review:

`. . . purchase would be advisable, simply because of the massive convenience of all the essays being thematically gathered and bound within the same covers. . . the book covers the full range from the discursive to the mathematical in its use of the technical tools of game and rational choice theory. But everyone with an interest will find something to suit them, whether they are mathematically inclined or not.' -- James Connelly, Environment Politics `Carlo Carraro has assembled a splendid set of papers by leading economists that address a key issue of our era: global governance with particular attention to environmental concerns. The depth and coverage of this volume will make it an invaluable source for us all.' -- Wallace E. Oates, University of Maryland, College Park and Resources for the Future, US

Book Description Edward Elgar Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The governance of the global environment is one of the major policy issues of the new century. Global environmental problems are increasingly important because of their impact on industrial activities, infrastructures, ecosystems, natural resources, biodiversity and human health. These problems can be managed and solved only through international co-operation, policy co-ordination, voluntary, widespread and equitable participation in the decision making process. This authoritative new collection analyses these issues from several different viewpoints. Political scientists, economists and lawyers provide ideas and analytical frameworks to deal with global environmental problems. Applications to climate changes, biodiversity, acid rains and ozone layer depletion are also discussed, thus providing inputs to both academic researchers and policymakers.
