You will find an overview of possible instruments and chords during and after your research in the following figure. Choose the instrument or chord you need and scroll down for a more detailed description. The world is the world of a dense network of international investment agreements (AI). AI is not well designed to encourage investment, let alone contribute to sustainable development. Existing AIs primarily contain widely formulated investor protection provisions, which may be enforceable by investor-state arbitration. Despite the strong investor protection of AI, however, the effects on investment are not clearly demonstrated. In some cases, investor protection has also been interpreted by investor countries to limit the ability of states to regulate in order to achieve sustainable development. The experience of investor-state arbitration and the changing context in which dieIA is being negotiated has raised awareness of the sharp bite of the IIA and encouraged increasing innovation in contractual models and certain effective contracts, which increase the prospect that they contribute to sustainable development focused on investment. However, many challenges hamper the ability of countries, particularly developing countries, to ensure that the treaties they have signed support their sustainable development, given their particular circumstances. In some cases, this is due to a lack of technical capacity to assess the appropriateness of certain types of provisions, despite the efforts of UNCTAD, the World Bank and NGOs in capacity building. Similarly, power imbalances continue to determine the outcome of negotiations between developed and developing countries. For many developing countries, competition for investment with similar countries could also discourage an aggressive approach to IIA negotiations. This paper examines some of the persistent systemic challenges that developing countries face in negotiating and meeting investment treaty commitments.

Because of the global mix of greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the atmosphere, anthropogenic climate change is a global common problem. This is why international cooperation is needed to make considerable progress in mitigating climate change. Based on the published research findings, this chapter critically examines and evaluates how international cooperation agreements and instruments can be organized and implemented. Retrospective analysis of international cooperation in the chapter quantifies and discusses what has been achieved so far and examines the literature on declarations of success and failure. The legal instrument is a legal name used for all formally executed written documents that may be formally attributed to their author[1] Records and formally expresses an enforceable act, procedure[2] or contractual obligation, obligation or any right[3] and therefore proof that the act, trial or agreement. [4] Examples include a certificate, an act, a contract, a contract, a will, a legislative act, a notarized act, a judicial decision or procedure, or a law passed by a legislative body competent in municipal (national) or international law. Many legal instruments have been written under seal, with a wax or paper seal affixed to the document as proof of its execution and authenticity (which has often eliminated the need for a review in contract law). Today, however, many jurisdictions have had to abolish the requirement that documents be secret to give them legal effects.

With the launch of the Internet and electronic devices such as personal computers and mobile phones, legal instruments or formal legal documents have undergone a gradual change in dematerialization. In this electronic age, document authentication can now be digitally verified with different software.
