WRI-UNEP Launch: Building the Climate Change Regime

A month from now, countries will gather in Durban, South Africa to try to reach agreement on an ambitious programme for tackling climate change. The world’s level of effort on climate change mitigation is not in line with the science. In a call to do more, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), with the support of the Government of Ireland, are releasing a paper that outlines various options put forward by governments, NGOs and academics for designing a climate regime capable of delivering adequate mitigation action.

Entitled Building the Climate Change Regime: Survey and Analysis of Approaches, the paper shows that a menu of options is available for scaling up action on the part of national governments and designing a climate regime capable of delivering adequate mitigation action. The World Resources Institute (WRI) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) cordially invite you to launch events in Dublin and Washington D.C.
