International Agreement On Environmental Protection

1.127 In all cases, with the exception of the MARPOL Agreement, the responsible services indicated that they were conducting periodic performance checks to assess environmental outcomes on the basis of expected results. However, none of the departments had clear documentation of the findings of these audits. This article notes that other areas of global governance can make a positive contribution to global health. In particular, the global environmental regime includes more than 300 contracts for health provisions. This contribution is particularly important when one considers that the health system itself has very few contracts. In addition, other environmental contracts, which are not explicitly related to health, could also indirectly contribute to health policy by reducing pollution and creating a healthier environment. It took 16 years for the World Heritage Convention, first ratified in the 1970s, and the CITIES Convention for 16 years to be ratified by more than 100 countries. However, the Kyoto Protocol was first ratified in 1998 and took only five years to reach the same point, and the Paris Agreement (2016) received 121 ratifications in the first year. Because of these barriers, environmental protocols become an obvious goal for several critical points, such as slow production.

B of the desired effects (due to the ratification process of the Convention), the maintenance of the lowest common denominator and the lack of monitoring and implementation. They can also be criticized for taking a progressive approach in which the principles of sustainable development indicate that environmental concerns must be taken into account in a coherent manner. How we see the effectiveness of the protocols depends on what we expect from them. With little administrative or real authority, the protocols increase government concern, improve the contractual environment and increase capacity by transferring assets. But as long as sovereignty is intact, environmental protocols will not have an impact on changes in relation to public or public apathy, guarantee national measures or materialize overnight.
