Module Overview
Climate change has historically been considered a global environmental problem, requiring effective global cooperative action. However, an emergent complementary perspective frames solutions to climate change as the result of myriad national and local decisions, such as around investment, consumption, and livelihoods. From this perspective, the central challenge is less building global cooperation and more enabling national and local systems to develop an integrated response to climate change and development.
