    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    Global climate change is the most serious and complex problem facing international society in the twenty-first century. The scientific uncertainties and political tensions inherent in resolving the problem mean that it cannot be addressed on the basis of a traditional top-down approach. Framing climate change as a governance issue focuses attention upon the importance of reflexive, inclusive and flexible decision-making. It also underscores the role of leadership and institutions (both formal and informal) that, in turn, raise questions about the locus of authority as well as normative concerns over equity and justice.
