Accountability in Global Environmental Governance – Workshop Report

Kramarz, Teresa, Ben Donato-Woodger, Kristen Pue. 2014. Accountability in Global Environmental Governance - Workshop Report. .


This report is the outcome of the Accountability in Global Environmental Governance Workshop on March 25, 2014, that sought to establish dialogue between scholars interested in accountability across the spread of environmental regimes (air, water, biodiversity, forests, climate change) including the organisations that host them (public, for-profit and community-based). The purpose of the workshop was to establish shared understandings of what constitutes accountability in global environmental governance. 

The workshop was made possible with the support of the Environment Governance Lab and the Munk School of Global Affairs at the University of Toronto. AGEG is an associated project of the Earth System Governance Network.
