Environmental governance is a concept in political ecology, environmental policy, and international global administration. Environmental governance advocates for sustainable development for the managing of all human activities – political, social, and economic. It views natural resources and the environment as global public goods that benefits everyone, that is, everyone is entitled for clean breathable air, and a stable climate, and continual biodiversity. This is accomplished through several government agencies, mainly the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) that works on climate and atmosphere, and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that focuses on nuclear security (Brandes & Brooks, 2005, p. 8).
