For cooperation in population control, UNCLAD aims at equal trade among nations. A report suggested that developing countries wanted their product to be sold at a fair price in MAD. However, the developed countries did not agree as the existing system was working well and they saw a chance in making profit in their investment in Third world. For environmental conservation, resentment within developing world hinder cooperation as well. Olds could not afford the high cost of environmental conservation since their resources are very limited. It created huge barrier to industrial growth Moreover, some Meds like the US and
Australia are uncooperative because of national interest. Their attitude made it more difficult and convincing to encourage L DC to cooperate. This causes mutual distrust between MAD and LED. For cooperation in science, developing countries received insufficient aid. Since international development of science and technology was mainly dominated by the developed countries , the developing couturiers received limited aid for their own development. A gap between developed and developing countries remained. Thus the controversy between MAD and LED hindered international cooperation.
International cooperation faced difficulties due to different culture. For cooperation on population control, the progress of birth control was slow due to old practice and attitudes. Artificial birth control was discouraged in Roman Catholic countries. While in Africa and Latin America, people believed that children equaled to large labor force agricultural production. For environmental conservation, despite efforts were made but people attitude and way of living is difficult to change. It was difficult to raise awareness of the importance of environmental conservation.
Thus cultural differences indeed the development of international cooperation. International cooperation faced difficulties due to limited power of organization and agreements as well. For environmental conservation, agreements were not binding. International agreements like the ROI Declaration 1992 and Kyoto protocol 1 997 were not legally binding. There is no mechanism to punish countries that violate the agreements. For cooperation on medicines, WHO limited power hinder cooperation as well. WHO depends on cooperation of member state to operate. WHO lacks the power to monitor the health condition of non-member.
Therefore, some entries still cannot reach the international standard of health and are unable to care for the health of their people. For cooperation on science and technology, promoting peaceful use of it was difficult. International organizations lacked the power to stop countries from using technology in a non-peaceful was. Thus limited power of organizations and agreement hindered international cooperation. International cooperation faced difficulties due to controversy on financial assistance. For cooperation on Population and wealth, 24 African states were heavily dependent on I-JNI for emergency food supplies.
The FAA has been criticized for spending too much money on food and too little on setting up sustainable agriculture system. International cooperation faced difficulties due to competition among nations, Scientific research was usually done by countries independently. Despite the international co-operative efforts in science and technology/ Countries seldom shared all their knowledge or techniques due to political and commercial concerns. Therefore technological advancement usually resulted into competition among countries, scientific institutes and commercial companies. Hey were rarely made through international co- operation.
International cooperation faced difficulties due to circumstances of LED. The medical conditions of many developing countries were poor due to civil war, political instability and lack of recourses. These countries could not improve their health and medical conditions. Moreover, the principles laid down at the international conferences for handling health related problems were usually not practical for them. International cooperation faced difficulties due to dominating power of MAD. For cooperation on population control, the UN agencies were nominated by rich countries that paid the money and made the rules.
