Problem-Shifting between International Environmental Treaty Regimes: Causes, Consequences, and Solutions

Project description

Global environmental problem-shifting

Every month, governments around the world gather to make important decisions to solve global environmental problems. However, their decisions often lead to new, and sometimes even more chronic and severe, environmental problems – what is known as global environmental problem-shifting. With over 800 international environmental treaties in force, the scale and complexity of environmental problem-shifting is severe and expected to increase. The EU-funded ProblemShifting project explains why problem-shifting occurs between these treaties and examines the systemic effects of problem-shifting in global environmental governance. Building on these findings, the project offers innovative governance solutions that help ensure our global environmental efforts add up to a net positive impact.
