Chapter Summary

This chapter assesses the contributions of developing countries in the development of international environmental treaties, focusing particularly on the 1980s and especially the period immediately before the 1992 Rio United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). It evaluates how developing country viewpoints were taken into account during the respective negotiations, reviews key issues of concern to them as weighed against those of developed countries, and considers whether the global community achieved an appropriate balance in its decisions. Most importantly, the chapter gives the increasingly critical nature of global environmental-related issues, offers a plan of action for how developing countries can enhance their negotiating capabilities for the future.

Keywords: developing Countries; development of international environmental treaties; global environmental-related issues; Judge Thomas A. Mensah; UNCED
