Assessing Transnational Climate Governance

Assessing Transnational Climate Governance

(p.161) Chapter 6 Assessing Transnational Climate Governance
Global Justice and Climate Governance

Alix Dietzel

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter Six assesses to what extent transnational actors enable the three demands of climate justice set out in Chapter Three. The assessment makes use of both existing climate change governance research and ten examples of transnational climate change governance initiatives, providing an insight into how transnational climate change governance has developed and where it stands today. Chapter Six focuses on one demand of climate justice at a time, assessing both what has been promised by transnational actors and what has been achieved so far. The chapter puts forward that although there is room for cautious optimism, overall transnational actors fail to fully enable any of the three demands of justice. The final part of Chapter Six summarises the findings made in Part II and considers what role both multilateral and transnational actors might play in the post-Paris Agreement regime. This is expanded on in the Conclusion of the book.

Keywords:   Transnational climate governance, non-state actors, post-Paris Agreement, future of climate governance
