ABSTRACT

Countries worldwide are increasingly attempting to address issues involving climate change and the environment, and the same phenomenon is occurring in the Korean Peninsula. The Republic of Korea is taking a growing leadership role in the global movement towards green growth. But what if this momentum was directed closer to home? This paper aims to assess the Green Détente as a policy mechanism for trust-building on the Korean Peninsula. It attempts to explore whether opportunities are available for environmental cooperation between the two Koreas as a stepping stone to future bilateral exchange.
