The Center for Governance and Sustainability is pleased to announce that Senior Fellow Stanley Johnson has published a new book sponsored by the United Nations Environment Programme. Johnson’s new book is entitled UNEP The First 40 Years; it is a narrative about UNEP’s journey from its inception at the 1972 Stockholm Conference to the present day.

The book is a close examination of the work, the trials, and the people that have contributed to UNEP’s experience as the voice of the environment. Johnson takes a behind-the-scenes look at a number of UNEP’s greatest struggles and achievements, including international environmental treaties and the motivations that led to UNEP’s headquartering in Nairobi. Prof. Maria Ivanova, who wrote her PhD dissertation on UNEP, consulted Johnson on the book and contributed to his research.

Johnson’s book is an excellent source for those interested in environmental governance, the role of UNEP in the global environmental movement, or how the major international environmental treaties have been formed and negotiated. To access the pdf, click here.
