not yet rated|write a review
Lombard analyzes the complementary relationship between trade and the environment in the emerging North American environmental management system comprising Canada, the United States, and Mexico. He views the development of closer trade relations among the three NAFTA members as having an overall and long-term beneficial impact on the environment, particularly air quality, in North America. He presents a revised model of environmental policy implementation which stresses further decentralization of environmental protection enforcement, greater reliance on nongovernmental organizations, including businesses, in environmental policy decisionmaking, and the fostering of regional approaches to resolving environmental problems.

.,."well structured and quite comprehensive....this book makes a very important contribution. It provides one of the closest comparative examinations of environmental protection in all three nations, and through that window can be seen many of the issues that the world will face as economic integration and trade regimes advance....Overall, this book provides us with a better sense of what works and what does not in terms of offsetting some of the possible negative environmental pressures inherent in global and regional economic integration."-American Political Science Review
