chapter  13
Toward a conclusion
Pages 6

This book has examined linkages between two multilateral environmental treaties, and linkages between two species. In order to understand the linkages, it has also been necessary to understand the histories of governance of the two species, their histories within both national and international law and something of the various human participants (be these nationalities, groups or individuals) who make decisions in respect of the two species, or who are affected by such decisions. The world’s understanding of management of natural resources is changing, and the politics surrounding issues may overlap and influence other issue areas.
