Interim Report of The Climate Governance Commission 2021
Humanity is facing one of its gravest crises ever, but has so far failed to rise to the challenge.
A key aim of this report is to highlight how enhancement or reform of the basic global governance architecture could contribute to better leadership and more effective and purposeful climate action. Despite the success represented by the adoption of the 2015 Paris Agreement and its fundamental importance in enshrining a shared legal framework, there is still a striking deficit in adequate governance architecture or mechanisms at the global level – and in many, or most, parts of the world also at the national and regional levels – that could reliably promote implementation of strong and expedient climate policies for the achievement of the necessary collective climate targets.
