Global Environmental Politics: Options for a more efficient governance structure (compl.)

Project Leader: Dr. Susanne Dröge
Project Assistant: Nils Simon

Funding by: Bundesministerium für Umwelt, Naturschutz und Reaktorsicherheit (BMU) (Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety)

In this project we analyse several models under discussion for an upgrading of the world environment governance structure, in particular the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The focus lies on a more efficient approach to international environmental governance which could help to manage the increasing environmental and social challenges. With a view to the Rio+20 anniversary in 2012, the project will generate an assessment of proposed institutional changes and their potential for resolving the shortcomings of the current system.
