Just as market failures can lead to outcomes that are socially undesirable, government failures can undermine efforts to supply governance in a variety of settings (Wolf 1988; Winston 2006). Those who favor privatization and deregulation generally take the view that government is a clumsy tool that seldom produces effective responses to the demand for governance. This sweeping judgment is clearly an exaggeration. But there is no doubt that government failures, in such forms as bureaucratic inertia and corruption, can and often do detract from the efforts of governments dev e l opm e n t i n a n i n t e r de pe n de n t wor l d 23 to meet the demand for governance.
One increasingly common response to situations of this kind is to establish governance systems – or regimes as they are often called – through the negotiation of intergovernmental agreements or multilateral environmental agreements. This increasingly popular strategy has led to the creation of several hundred regimes over the last few decades, dealing with a wide range of issues from the conservation of whales to the management of the Earth’s climate system. This approach to the supply of governance, which accords roles to governments, but now as players in multilateral agreements rather than purveyors of governance on their own, has become a focus of attention among policymakers and scholars alike (Young 1999a).
Governance failures Just as economists emphasize the idea of market failures and devote time to thinking of ways to avoid such failures or overcome them once they 36 G ov e r na nce for t h e E n v i ron m e n t occur, those interested in governance systems must pay attention to the prospect of governance failures (Wolf 1988; Winston 2006). Here, too, there is much to be said for organizing our thinking at two levels: the micro-level of governance systems created to solve a specific problem and the macro-level of basic structures of governance.
