From Public to Private Global Environmental Governance

From Public to Private Global Environmental Governance

A Brief History

(p.39) 2 From Public to Private Global Environmental Governance
From Precaution to Profit

Brian J. Gareau

Yale University Press

This chapter provides a brief history of global environmental governance. Environmental governance began with a strong footing in precautionary measures, with broad support from the public and policy makers for command-and-control government regulation and with faith in the global scientific community. That faith, however, has been replaced with neoliberal concerns for free markets, business-led environmentalism, cost-effective approaches, and government deregulation. Public global science is constantly questioned by the private sector. This history of environmental governance follows the path trod by environmental economists over time.
