This book focuses on global commons within the larger canvas of the world’s political and economic landscape. It explores global environmental negotiations against the backdrop of complex political relations, the climate change convention in relation to the policies of the developed world, and multilateral environmental assessments and their effect on special interest groups. Finally, it weaves in the story of India’s emergent economy and its sustainable development in this context. Analysing global environmental movements, the book discusses the pattern of global negotiations to portray the plight of a post-modern world that grapples with problems of climate, land degradation, chemical transfers, and biodiversity. The central theme of the book is that plurality and diversity lie at the root of ensuring that a globalized world offers happiness to its citizens.
