The Global Security & Politics Program is exploring innovative solutions to intractable political problems such as climate change. Researchers are offering original concrete recommendations for making the UNFCCC more effective and are making new proposals on, for example, how to reach agreements among smaller sets of countries, how to address the problems of delayed benefits from mitigation and concentrated political opposition, ways that China can exercise leadership in climate change and how world financial institutions can help mobilize climate finance from the private sector.
