Climate Governance Commission

The Climate Governance Commission aims to fill a crucial gap in confronting the global climate emergency by developing, proposing, and building partnerships that promote feasible, high impact global governance solutions for urgent and effective climate action to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C or less.

Among other partners, the Commission is collaborating with the Exponential Roadmap Initiative which has identified 36 technologically viable and market-ready solutions that can be scaled to halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 worldwide, and provide pathways to achieve the <1.5°C temperature rise limitation target. 

The Commission aims to identify barriers and bottlenecks that prevent these existing solutions from being implemented at a pace and scale that mirrors the magnitude of the challenge. It then seeks to propose and promote implementable, high impact reforms or enhancements of global governance institutions and processes to assist in overcoming current obstacles and accelerating a just transition to a necessarily sustainable society.
