About the Authors
  • Harnessing Foreign Investment to Promote Environmental Protection investigates the main challenges facing the implementation of environmental protection and the synergies between foreign investment and environmental protection. Adopting legal, economic and political perspectives, the contributing authors analyse the various incentives which encourage foreign investment into pro-environment projects (such as funds, project-finance, market mechanisms, payments-for-ecosystem services and insurance) and the safeguards against its potentially harmful effects (investment regulation, CSR and accountability mechanisms, contracts and codes of conduct).

    • Examines legal issues from a broader policy perspective
    • Highlights synergies between foreign investment and environmental protection that will assist policy-makers at both the domestic and international levels
    • Interdisciplinary analysis combines law, economics and politics, and will appeal to readers from various different disciplines
