National Environmental Policies: Comparative Study of Capacity-building

The development of national environmental policies is of great concern to government and industry, since it sets the structural conditions for international trade and commerce. The reports of 13 countries allow us to compare the environmental policies on a global scale, ranging from smaller countries, developing and developed countries to industrialized countries. Individual reports contain information about the most urgent environmental problems, national environmental policies and activities, as well as environmental capacity building. The book is of use to all scientists, managers and decision makers in universities, industry, and state authorities.
