What are the prospects for averting dangerous climate change and which strategies offer promising avenues to successfully tackle this global challenge?
These questions are at the heart of an analysis that begins by evaluating the possibilities and limits of transnational cooperation in climate policy. The book then investigates the normative underpinnings for avoiding dangerous climate change and looks at policy instruments for climate protection. The final part of the discussion turns to developing an implementation strategy centered on the innovative concept of a Modular Carbon Market (MCM) as an institutional structure for global emissions management.
Daniel Klingenfeld has worked extensively on questions of global climate policy design. He completed doctoral studies at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and holds Master degrees from the Kennedy School at Harvard University and ESCP Europe.
