International agreements have become a favored instrument for addressing large-scale, complex natural resource issues. Not only has the number increased, but recent agreements tend to be multilateral instead of bilateral, and the scope of agreements has broadened from protection of groups of species and boundary waters to encompass habitat protection and, more recently, protection of entire ecosystems. With the recent increase in state and local government participation in foreign affairs comes the risk that agreement provisions may not reflect the full scope of domestic interests, or that subsequent agreements are difficult to implement for technical or political reasons.
