Abstract The project aims to improve environmental policy in developing countries by drawing lessons for constructing co-operative environmental management as a new form of localized environmental regulation. Co-operative environmental management involves partnerships between public and private sectors (including investors, government agencies and citizens), and can help avoid costly and damaging disputesbetween companies and local communities, as well as accelerate the provision of environmental technology. The project will examine examples of co-operative environmental management in North America and Europe, and then assess how far these cases may provide lessons for building similar co-operation in rapidly industrializing countries. The project will focus in particular on case studies where new technology has been used to manage local urban, industrial, or agro-industrial waste; and where such waste has been used to generate electricity as a renewable energy source. By doing this, the project will focus on both local and global environmental concerns, and particularly the implementation of Climate Change policies in developing countries. Research will be carried out comparatively inIndia, the Philippines, Thailand, and (subject to confirmation) China or Singapore. The project will provide guidelines for public policy bodies, citizen groups, and investors for building successful co-operation
