The challenges presented by global environmental problems have yet to receive effective global governance response (for details, see Christoff and Eckersley 2013: 163-89). The 1987 Montreal Protocol for protection of the ozone layer remains the high point of effective multilateral treaty making on any significant global ecological issue. The 20 years that followed the landmark 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio saw retreat in global ambitions. The sort of stirring language that could find its way into the 1992 Declaration proved too controversial 20 years later at the 2012 United Nations Conference on Sustainable development (Rio+20).
