This event is by invitation only. This workshop seeks to reflect upon the innovative dynamics that are emerging in global environmental governance, providing a provisional map of the processes and implications of fragmentation and innovation in global environmental governance.

There is a growing recognition that the traditional state-centric intergovernmental model of addressing global environmental problems is insufficient in the face of increasingly complex and overlapping environmental issues.

Corporations, social and environmental organizations, private-public partnerships, sub-state governments, and even local communities have already begun to conceive and implement governance initiatives to address global environmental problems.

At this important historical moment of creativity and instability in the practices and understanding of governance, this workshop seeks to reflect upon the innovative dynamics that are emerging in global environmental governance, providing a provisional map of the processes and implications of fragmentation and innovation in global environmental governance.
