Papers on International Environmental Negotiation, Volume 05

William R. Moomaw, Lawrence E. Susskind, and Janet L. Sawin, eds.


This is the fifth volume in a series to address trans-boundary and global commons environment and resource problems. The chapters in this volume  were written and presented by students in a graduate seminar on International Environmental Negotiation offered jointly by the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and the MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning. The proposals presented in these annual collections of essays are designed to improve the negotiation process and the substantive outcomes of existing and future environmental agreements.

The ten chapters in this volume address five broad themes: negotiating and implementing agreements, technology transfer and trade, hazardous materials, refugess and the environment, and conserving biological diversity.


The chapter titles and authors are as follows:

  • “Negotiating Bolder International Environmental Treaties: Using Parallel Informal Meetings to Improve Outcomes,” by John P. Glyphis
  • “Voluntary Codes of Management: New Opportunities for Increased Corporate Accountability,” by Anne M. Gelfand
  • “Environmental Monitoring and Remote Sensing,” by Robert Faris
  • “Joint Implementation: Crafting a Viable Strategy for North-South Cooperation,” by Kare Lei-Chen Khor
  • “Current Options for Facilitating the Transfer of Environmentally Sound Technologies,” by Lorene Flaming
  • “Unilateral Trade Related Environmental Measures and the World Trade Organization,” by Susana Hernandez
  • “An International Regime for the Transport and Management of Nuclear Waste,” by Renan Poveda
  • “A Framework Convention to Prohibit the Export of Banned and Canceled Pesticides from Developed to Developing Countries,” by Tanya J. Nunn
  • “The Impact of Refugees on the Environment,” by Yvonne Agyei
  • “Conserving Biodiversity: A Reformed CITES in an Integrated Approach,” by Melissa Etheridge

Soft copy vs. hard copy

You may order this role simulation in either soft copy (electronic) or hard copy (paper) format. If you select the soft copy option, you will receive an e-mail with a URL (website address) from which you may download an electronic file in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. You will have one week to download your materials from when you receive the email. You are then only authorized to use, print, or share the materials as many times as the number of copies you purchase. The TNRC charges for use of this simulation on a per-participant basis. Therefore, you must purchase a separate copy of this simulation for each person who will be participating, regardless of the number of roles in the simulation. You will only receive a link to one electronic file, which includes all general instructions, confidential instructions, and any teaching notes for the simulation. You should separate out the instructions before distributing to participants.

If you select the hard copy option, you will receive paper copies of this role simulation via the shipping method you select.

For additional information about the soft copy option, please visit our FAQ section, or contact the PON Teaching Negotiation Resource Center at or 800-258-4406 (within the U.S.) or 301-528-2676 (outside the U.S.).

Please note: At the present time, Teaching Negotiation Resource Center soft copies are compatible with the following versions of the Adobe Acrobat Reader: English, German, French, Spanish, Swedish, Portuguese, Japanese, and Korean. If you have a different version of the Acrobat Reader, you may wish to download one of these at, or contact the PON Teaching Negotiation Resource Center at, 800-258-4406 (within the U.S.), or 301-528-2676 (outside the U.S.) for further assistance. This restriction does not apply to the freely available Teacher’s Package Review Copies.

Ordering a single copy for review

If you wish to review the materials for a particular role simulation to decide whether you’d like to use it, a PDF, or soft copy, version of the Teacher’s Package for the simulation is available as a free download from the description page of most role simulations and case studies. All Teacher’s Packages include copies of all participant materials. In addition, some Teacher’s Packages (but not all) include additional teaching materials such as teaching notes or overhead masters.

Ordering copies for multiple participants

To order multiple copies of a role simulation for use in a course or workshop, simply enter the total number of participants in the box next to “Quantity.” There is no need to calculate how many of each role is required.

If you are ordering hard copies, the Teaching Negotiation Resource Center will calculate the appropriate numbers of each role to provide, based on the total number of participants. For example, if you wish to order a 2-party role simulation for use with a class of 30 students, you would enter “30” in the box next to “Quantity.” You then would receive 15 copies of one role and 15 copies of the other role, for use with your 30 participants. As another example, if you ordered 30 participant copies of a 6-party role simulation, you would receive 5 copies of each role.

In the event that the number of participant copies you order is not evenly divisible by the number of roles in the simulation, you will receive extra copies of one or more roles. Participants receiving the extra roles may partner with other participants playing the same role, thus negotiating as a team. So, for instance, if you ordered 31 copies of a 2-party role simulation, you would receive 15 copies of the first role and 16 copies of the second role. One of the participants playing the second role would partner with another participant playing that same role, and the two would negotiate as a team.
