Chapter Summary

This section will review some of the unique features and techniques of multilateral environmental agreements that may point the way for enhanced international organization in other fields. Author begins with the very fact that states have, especially since the 1980s, concluded a number of multilateral environmental agreements, or MEAs. The international community clearly realizes that when it comes to the environment, cooperation through international organization produces win-win solutions. A clear illustration of this need to have all the key players in the tent is provided by the 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. In conclusion, author believes continued progress in international organization is inevitable. Just in the last decade, technology such as the Internet and cell phones has shrunk the world in ways we could not have imagined twenty years ago.
