It's Still the Economy, the Political Economy of Climate Transformation

How is it possible that despite multiple pledges and commitments, rapid progress in key technologies, and the implementation of more than 4,500 climate policies, the world is not on track to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement? "Within Reach: Navigating the Political Economy of Decarbonization" discusses within-country political economy as a key barrier to progress. It shows that the political economy is dynamic and that it can be changed to achieve impactful climate action.
