Revised and updated throughout, this unique anthology examines global environmental politics from a range of perspectives – contemporary and classic, activist and scholarly – and reflects voices of the powerless and powerful. Paradigms of sustainability, environmental security, and ecological justice illustrate the many ways environmental problems and their solutions are framed in contemporary international debates about climate, water, forests, toxins, energy, food, biodiversity, and other environmental challenges of the twenty-first century.

Organized around real-world debates on contentious issues in international environmental politics, the selections offer a truly global scope. New readings discuss sustainability and resilience efforts at local and state levels, the UN’s sustainable development goals, increasing violence against environmental defenders, and the future of global environmental politics in the wake of the Paris Climate Agreement and its bumpy road to implementation. This book stresses the underlying questions of power, interests, authority, and legitimacy that shape environmental debates, and it provides readers with a global range of perspectives on the critical challenges facing the planet and its people.
