Environmental Agreements - Environmental Effectiveness
The use of Environmental Agreements as policy tools in EU Member States has increased in the past decade. This has raised concerns, particularly among parties not involved in their negotiation, such as the European Parliament and Non-Governmental Organisations
Since Environmental Agreements are relatively recent in the policy arena, related literature is scarse, consisting mainly of theoretical studies with with very little on their practical application. To fill this gap, the report examines six Agreements covering various countries and environmental issues, and tries to evaluate their environmental effectiveness.
