Summary From Promises to Performance explores the challenges inherent in efforts to preserve the global environment. Gary Bryner examines the complexities of the policy-making process, the use of market-based regulatory instruments to achieve policy goals, the kinds of international institutions needed to ensure policy implementation, the interaction of environmental and economic concerns, and the role of the less developed world.
