The Introduction sets out the main aims of the book: make sense of the lack of proper response to climate change – focusing on what has gone wrong, what has gone right, and what might change now that the Paris Agreement has been ratified. After this has been set out, the Introduction provides a brief overview of the climate change problem. Next, the Introduction defends the use of a cosmopolitan approach and comments on existing cosmopolitan research, to explain how this book relates to and contributes to current work on the subject. Finally, the Introduction outlines what is to come in the remainder of the book.

Keywords:   Climate justice, multilateral climate governance, UNFCCC, transnational climate governance, non-state actors, cosmopolitanism
