Global Environmental Politics in a Turbulent Era

About the eBook

With the rapid destabilization, escalation and convergence of various environmental crises, global environmental politics is facing extreme turbulence. Tracing the causes, consequences and dangers of planetary turbulence, this essential book identifies the emerging opportunities to improve governance in environmental politics and transition the world order toward greater equity, justice and sustainability.

Providing a comprehensive understanding of the nature and breadth of global environmental politics, leading scholars investigate the intersecting crisis events of this turbulent era. Chapters explore the political, environmental and economic issues surrounding growing inequality: soaring food and fuel prices; record numbers of migrants and refugees fleeing persecution and destitution; and the intensification of climate change. Finding the sources of turbulence to be overlapping and reinforcing, the book digs deeper into how various actors generate turbulence, looking closely at state sovereignty, civil society and societal organizations. Forward thinking, it reflects how different practices, conditions, lenses, and tools can create future avenues to imagine, facilitate, and actualize solutions for global sustainability during times of extreme turbulence.

Interdisciplinary and international in scope, this insightful book will be an invaluable resource to students and scholars of environmental politics, policy, and governance; alongside policymakers and organizations looking to realize the Sustainable Development Goals.
