How have transnational organizations attempted to implement workable climate change policies? Why is it proving so difficult to reach binding international agreements and consensus on global climate governance? Indeed, who should ultimately be responsible for implementing and policing climate change initiatives? In the following video, former CIGI Senior Fellow Jason Blackstock discusses some of the most important challenges confronting international climate negotiations and governance. In addition to explaining the lack of progress made at recent climate negotiations – not to mention most states’ inability to comply with existing international frameworks – Blackstock also offers new ideas on how to make transnational climate policies more binding and effective.
