Implementing Global Planetary Governance Reform

How do we design and implement the needed global governance reforms to address the planetary emergency?

ABOUT

There is an urgent need to implement new approaches, frameworks, and institutions for planetary governance to maintain the viability of our earth system. The Climate Governance Commission has already laid out a series of proposals under the flagship report Governing Our Planetary Emergency. The Commission is already networked to numerous thought leaders, policy entrepreneurs, think tanks, academics, states, people and others around the world – including, centrally, within the “Global South.”

The next phase of work requires research into how to make these proposals a reality, including focused diplomatic outreach. The program at THE NEW INSTITUTE will focus on the analysis and implementation of a number of proposals identified in the report. We will focus conceptually on issues of (i.) developing a Global Environmental Agency and (ii.) building an International Court of the Environment with the goal of strengthening international law, and (iii.) other high level institutional reforms or measures in the near-term (e.g., Declaration of Planetary Emergency by the UN General Assembly, establishing a Planetary Emergency Platform).
