41 My approach necessitates a focus on both formation and implementation. Next, there is variation regarding whether to apply a comparative approach and study variance in implementation between states or variance in implementation between regimes, or to limit the study to account for implementation in a single case (Underdal, 1998b; Brown Weiss & Jacobson, 1994). My analytical framework seeks to address DC implementation of IEAs as its scope of applicability - it should thus allow for comparison between the same IEA in different DCs and between different IEAs in the same DC.

One obvious rationale for drawing an analytical distinction between the three models, rather than lurnping all explanatory factors together in one megamodel, is to gain greater c1arity in the analysis and presentation of the case. In the following two sections I relate the three models more c10sely to international environmental politics and biodiversity. I begin with a few general remarks about the applicability of the models, and then turn to some examples from the literature. 1 The models: scope 0/ applicability and approach to global environmental problems How does the realist model relate to environmental policies?

A. protocols and bilateral agreements are included. 20 CHAPTER 1 The causal relationship between, for instance, "toxic" pollutants and degradation of the sea is hardly disputed. In contrast to most regional pollution regimes, however, in the biodiversity area the links between causes and effects are much more complex. This leads back to the first aspect, pointing to the great number of sources leading to biodiversity loss, and indicating that almost every sector of human activity is involved and may be affected by efforts to address the problem.
