Governing Climate Change, Second Edition, provides a short and accessible introduction to how climate change is governed by an increasingly diverse range of actors, from civil society and market actors to multilateral development banks, donors, and cities.

This updated edition also includes:

up-to-date coverage of the negotiations post-Copenhagen (Cancun, Durban, and towards Paris) and some of the shifts in the inter-governmental politics;a deeper discussion of the roles of actors that have come to prominence in the climate negotiations;an overview of the key funding mechanisms such as the Green Climate Fund, Adaptation Fund, the High-Level Advisory Group on Climate Change Finance, and REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation);a direct assessment of what the proliferation of TCCG (Transnational Climate Change Governance) adds up to in terms of legitimacy, effectiveness etc., drawing on all the recent research in this area;an analysis of renewable energy in the UK (in the light of recent controversies around the siting of wind turbines and fracking projects).

Providing an interdisciplinary perspective drawing on geography, politics, international relations, and development studies, this book is essential reading for students and scholars concerned not only with the climate governance but with the future of the environment in general.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a remarkable book. It manages to be both an accessible introduction to the basics of climate politics and a tour of cutting edge thinking on the complex dynamics of climate governance. Bulkely and Newell have provided a wonderful resource for students and scholars alike." - Professor Matthew Hoffmann, Department of Political Science, University of Toronto, Canada

"Bulkeley and Newell have updated their Governing Climate Change with coverage of the many new developments in climate governance, without losing any of the sharpness, concision, and breadth of coverage of their excellent first edition of the book. It will be core reading for anyone trying to understand the bewildering complexity of how societies are trying to grapple with climate change." - Matthew Paterson, Professor of Political Science, University of Ottawa, Canada

"In Governing Climate Change, Second Edition, two of Britain's leading experts offer a comprehensive yet accessible study on current climate policy, with a highly refreshing and innovative look at the vast universe of politics beyond the state. Newell and Bulkeley's powerful analysis shows convincingly that climate governance reaches much farther than the traditional intergovernmental regime." - Frank Biermann, Professor of Political Science and of Environmental Policy Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
