a. The concerns of the different worlds are varied, in case of the developed countries which is referred to as the global north. They are much more concerned about global warming and ozone layer depletion because they are self-sufficient and therefore they are moving towards the welfare-oriented society.
Whereas, the underdeveloped and developing countries are majorly in need of the self-sufficiency and that too without poverty and scarcity. Therefore the needs of the countries differ from developed to underdeveloped i.e. form I world to III world.
b. The issues raised by the north and south countries were different. The north countries which are developed were raising the issues of environmental problems in which all the countries are equally responsible for ecological conservation.
The global south opined that much of the environmental degradation is contributed by the industrial development undertaken by the developed countries. If they have caused more degradation, they should contribute more to environmental conservation and also developing countries should not be equally liable as the developed countries since their contribution to degradation are less
Thus the special needs of the developing countries must be taken into account in the development, application, and interpretation of rules of international environmental law.
