"Paying the Incremental Costs of Global Environmental
Protection: The Evolving Role of GEF," A. Jordan (Sch.

how it led to restructuring for the second phase, worked out this

a test of how well governments can collaborate in pursuit of
globally sustainable development, which can only be built upon
mutually beneficial political bargains for the countries of the
North and South.

problems. Examines the theoretical and practical difficulties of
defining and implementing the concepts, and assesses whether
conflicting opinions can be resolved.
