Abstract and Keywords
As economic development has proceeded rapidly in many parts of Asia, the environment has emerged as a major issue of concern in the sphere of human security and has become an important area of transborder contention and cooperation. In response to increasing levels of transboundary resource exploitation and pollution, states in Asia have created new international institutions at the bilateral, regional, and subregional level. This chapter examines these patterns of environmental cooperation and conflict in the region. It also shows how institutional design, domestic politics, cooperation theory, and normative frames help explain the emergence and the implementation of the new environment-related initiatives currently found in Asia.
