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

To fill this gap, the report examines six Agreements covering various countries and environmental issues, and tries to evaluate their environmental effectiveness.
