The world faces a deepening planetary emergency – and is on a reckless path toward catastrophic climate change – having already over-stepped six of nine scientifically-identified planetary boundaries. A system-wide approach to solving the climate crisis is now required to ensure reliable climate and planetary boundary governance for the Earth as a whole. In its report Governing Our Planetary Emergency, the Climate Governance Commission has recommended bold and concrete steps to catalyze a shift in global governance for the benefit of all, with proposed pathways to address the planetary emergency.
The Climate Governance Commission is formed by its Commissioners and Contributing Experts, a group of diverse and high-level experts, who advise on and contribute to proposals regarding global climate governance, planet boundary governance and related global ecological challenges. CGC aims to address this crucial gap by developing, proposing, and building partnerships that promote feasible, high-impact global governance solutions for urgent and effective climate action to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C or less.
