What Future For International Climate Politics?
This paper argues that with the international deadline of 2015 approaching, a change is needed in the ways in which civil society approaches international climate change politics and policy. It states that: ‘International responses to the climate challenge have failed to address growing inequities and have lacked in ambition and urgency.’
Since the collapse of negotiations at Copenhagen the authors argue that civil society disillusionment combined with a retreat from engaging in the international climate policy process.
The paper gives proposals and ideas which the authors believed can help with devising smarter strategies for change change and enable engagement by civil society in international climate policy to be more effective.
