|Resum: ||The purpose of this Master's Thesis is to analyze the Institutional Framework for
Sustainable Development debate that is currently happening into the ongoing
preparation process of the 2012 Conference on Sustainable Development, and more
concretely about the Global Environmental Governance institutions within the United
In order to achieve this aim this study contextualizes the previously mentioned debate,
through three parts: historical review of the Global Environmental Governance, analysis
of the current Multilateral Environmental Agreements, and United Nations actors'
analysis. These three parts are essential to understand the Institutional Framework for
Sustainable Development and Global Environmental Governance debate; as the actors
and the Multilateral Environmental Agreements define the Institutional Framework that
should make possible to face the Environmental problems and Challenges.
After contextualizing the Global Environmental Governance, the Secretary-General
Report on the Preparatory Committee Recently held in New York  is critically read,
arriving to different conclusions and proposals; among them the fact that the United
Nations trends to duplicate structures which work on similar topics, the suggestion that
thematic clustering of some of the current MEAs could improve the lack of coordination
among actors involved in the Institutional Framework for Sustainable Development, the
need of creation of a Global monitoring system on Environmental impact assessment or
the difficulties that the United Nations shows for integrating environmental topics
within its structure.|
