The Paris Agreement has charted a new course in a two-decade old effort to respond to global climate change. The Agreement balances bottom-up national contributions with top-down rules for review, transparency and collective consideration of overall adequacy. This book brings together a collection of essays which analyse how the themes of adaptation and resilience; energy transitions and technology innovation; climate finance and; the role of non-state actors in the evolving climate regime will develop under the new framework. Addressing a complex challenge like climate change will require action at multiple levels by a diverse set of actors; building trust and legitimacy in the eyes of actors, across a range of goals, will be central to the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement.
