Environment, Vol 55, No 5, 2013, pp. 14-30.

This article presents findings from a multinational research project that identified some of the best and worst practices in international and transnational environmental cooperation, in terms of configuration of actors in the performance of various governance components: agenda setting, negotiated settlement, compliance, implementation and resilience. The cases span a variety of differ¬ent environmental challenges and were selected based on their importance for addressing questions about the actors engaged in each particular project.
