Book Description

This book provides an in depth analysis of global governance integration and institutional innovation.

The volume argues that for global GHG emissions to be stabilized and reduced in line with targets global energy and climate governance need to align and integrate more closely, avoiding the compartmentalization between them that has thwarted progress for too long. This, in turn, requires institutional innovation and change, both with regards to adapting existing institutions to 21st century realities and by generating new institutional arrangements. Heubaum aims to show how this process is now underway, what has already been achieved, and what challenges still remain.

Advancing knowledge about the growing interaction and integration of global energy and climate governance, this work will be of interest to upper level students and scholars of environmental governance, climate change and international organizations.
