Climate Diplomacy

Climate change is an inherently cross-boundary issue, and emissions reductions at home must be matched by ambitious climate policy abroad. The Center for American Progress regularly convenes bilateral Track II climate dialogues to support and accelerate clean energy transitions through joint policy endeavors, while also engaging in international policy mechanisms such as the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change on the issues of mitigation, adaptation, loss and damage, and nature-based solutions. Underpinning all of CAP’s climate diplomacy is a science-based approach to policymaking and keeping the 1.5 degrees Celsius warming goal of the Paris Agreement within reach.
