Implementing the Paris Agreement – Overcoming Barriers and Identifying Drivers for Effective Climate Governance

The Paris Climate Agreement entered into force in November 2016. This international agreement was ratified in record time by 110 countries, accounting for over 75 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. The international community must now develop a regulatory regime for its implementation, deliver on their proposed commitments, and develop these further as the process progresses. Against this background, this project aims to analyse the barriers and drivers to the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement and the roles and limitations of actors and institutions at the international, regional, and national levels.
