Chapter Summary

There is a long list of uses of the term integration that are considered in the literature. In this chapter, integration is primarily used in one sense, integration of international efforts to address a range of global environmental challenges in an overall context of sustainability. The chapter focuses on the substantive outcomes of the climate change regime. It first briefly considers linkages between human activities responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, the atmosphere, the climate system, natural systems, and human systems. This is followed by a review of the evolution of the climate change regime to determine to what extent it has identified and integrated appropriate linkages to other environmental issues. Using the assessment of the regime and missed opportunities for integration as a starting point, the chapter then discusses how international integration of global environmental challenges may be improved.

Keywords: climate change regime; global environmental challenges; integration of international efforts
