Overthelast two decades,theinterest ininternationalenvironmentalproblemssuch as climate change, ozone depletion, marine pollution has grown immensely and it has driven an increased sense of interdependencebetween countries. CooperationamongdifferentcountriesappearsnecessaryandthisresultsinInternational Environmental Agreements (IEA) such as Helsinky and Olso Protocol signed in 1985 and 1994; Montreal Protocol on the reduction of CFCs that deplete the ozone layer, signed in 1987; Kyoto Protocol, on the reduction of greenhouse gases causing global warming, signed in 1997.
