Abstract

The first “commitment period” of the Kyoto Protocol expired at the end of 2012 and it was agreed that the life of the Kyoto Protocol would be extended until 2020. The 2011 Durban platform was the first of its kind to include all countries including China and the United States in future negotiations to cut greenhouse gas emissions. Future negotiations will be even tougher and rockier than what we have witnessed so far. In this study, we have observed in simple diagrams, using the multi-dimensional scaling (MDS) technique, how similarly or differently people of many different countries responded at the aggregate level to the waves of surveys carried out by the World Values Survey (WVS) on environmental issues. Our findings show a wide-ranging view on the environment across countries. They also show which countries South Korea can partner with to find a solution to this complex problem. It is observed, by commonality, that South Korea can regionally cooperate with countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, and to a lesser extent with China and Vietnam. Countries like the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Sweden, Norway, and Mexico can be South Korea’s non-regional partners.
