Greening the United Nations Charter: World Politics in the Anthropocene

Improving global governance
Posted Sep 28, 2013 | Environment Magazine

This article from the Environment Magazine suggests that after the creation of the United Nations in 1945 to ensure international peace, and the strengthening in the 1990s of economic governance systems, there is now a need for a new institutional framework for the effective governance of the interaction of human societies with the planetary system. Author Frank Biermann suggests an institutional blueprint for the largest transformation of the United Nations system since 1945 that would bring it in line with the needs of planetary stewardship and Earth system governance. He suggests the establishment of four bodies that would form an Earth Alliance in the UN system. Issues/2012/May-June 2012/Greening-the-UN-full.html
