Title: The Combined Success of the International Tropical Timber Agreements
Author: Chirchi, Dunya
Abstract: The improvement of international environmental regimes is a delicate science that is slowly being mastered through a complicated and costly process of trial and error. Differences in regime effectiveness are influenced by multiple variables, including politics, regime structure, scope, and power and number of actors involved. Only through comparison and analysis of different regimes and counterfactuals can the effectiveness of environmental treaties be determined. In a world with no international authority to enforce compliance of international law, regime design is the only way to improve the environment on a global level. Once evaluated, the specific parts of a regime that made it successful can be adopted and applied to future international agreements. The 1983 International Tropical Timber Agreement (ITTA), and its successor in 1994, attempted to further conservation of tropical timber for the use of future generations.
