International efforts in coming up with common strategies in addressing various environmental issues are confronted by not just economic and ecological interdependence but by the discrepancies and disputes experiences between and within several different states as well. Integrating diverse states into participating in environmental treaty regimes is one of the fundamental challenges today. As such, we see that three decades of environmental dialogue has successfully resulted in how the community of sovereign states has come up with a conceptual legal framework that enables burden-sharing arrangements. Also, various techniques are being adopted by industrial and developing countries in implementing international environmental regimes. This final chapter asserts how differential treatment proves to be one of the most effective measures in imposing such environmental regimes as such would not undermine the capabilities of developing countries to contribute to such environmental efforts.
