Global Governance and Future Trends Strengthening global governance Governance at global regional and national level is lacking, there is a lack of coherence, even in matters of global common interests. The EU, ASEAN, and other regional organisations can play a crucial role in tackling environmental issues, facilitating the implementation of MEAs, mobilizing stakeholders, and sharing experiences.

Compliance, Monitoring and Enforcement    Environmental law - a toothless tiger? More than perhaps any other area of law in recent years, environmental looks like a toothless tiger. This is not due to a lack of law, or the inactivity of enforcement agents. Instead it is the disconnect between enforcement sanctions and corporate deterrence that has challenged law's relevance in protecting the environment. Stiffer penalties are not the answer but rather the radical application of…
