Accelerating Climate Change Mitigation

UN Climate Change Conference

This is an article collection published in Sustainable Earth.

This collection on climate change mitigation brings together a collection of policy-relevant papers focused on innovation, policy and governance of climate change mitigation technologies. Taking a multidisciplinary perspective, we aim to include reflections on ex-post policy evaluation, how contextual factors affect success and how they could be managed, and how countries, businesses and other actors can collaborate more effectively to meet the Paris Agreement objectives. Building on (but not limited to) the results of the CARISMA project , this article collection aims to formulate an answer to the question, 'What innovation and economic policy would make a nation 2050-proof from a climate perspective?'
