A transnational legal process approach enhances understanding of instrument choice in international environmental law. International allowance trading depends upon international transactions and therefore requires detailed international legal rules. Since enacting these rules generally requires unanimous consent, agreement to a well-designed international trading program will prove difficult. Because key countries may either oppose trading as inequitable or not agree to good design criteria, international allowance trading may discourage effective participation in international agreements. An approach that reliesupon national compliance using nationally chosen methods merits consideration as an alternative to international selection of environmental instruments.
