Shaping National Responses to Climate Change: A Post-Rio Guide

The book frames the issue and assesses the economic, policy, and management tradeoffs involved in: designing strategies for international agreements developing and implementing the means to enforce international agreements comparing alternative policy responses transferring technology from developed to developing countries making the transition from an international agreement to a domestic agenda to implement that agreement Rather than promote specific options, the authors present a strategic framework from which specific alternatives can be assessed and compared, and offer guidance and advice that will be essential throughout the decade.
