Thinking Global: An International Look at Climate Efforts

Thinking Global: An International Look at Climate Efforts
The recently released report, "International Climate Efforts Beyond 2012: A Survey of Approaches," by Daniel Bodansky of the University of Georgia and Sophie Chou and Christie Jorge-Tresolini of the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, surveys and synthesizes more than 40 proposed approaches for strengthening international climate efforts beyond 2012.

In addition to brief summaries of each proposal, the report provides an overview of key issues in the design and negotiation of future international efforts, and describes how the various proposals seek to address them. The issues include: the form and forum of negotiations; the time frame of a future agreement; the type and stringency of climate commitments; burden-sharing; and adaptation. The report also outlines criteria for assessing different options from a policy and a political perspective.
