The Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy at King’s College London and Cambridge University Press invite you to a book launch for:

Innovating Climate Governance: Moving beyond Experiments

Co-edited by Bruno Turnheim (King's College London), Paula Kivimaa (University of Sussex) and Frans Berkhout (King's College London). (ISBN:9781108417457, 2018)

Featuring discussion with the authors and a chapter contributor, along with a commentary by Fred Steward, Emeritus Professor of Innovation and Sustainability, University of Westminster

Discussion will be followed by a drinks reception

Across the globe, climate change governance is being tackled experimentally, through different political and socio-technical responses at a local level. Enthusiasm for such experimental, smaller scale initiatives has blossomed, after the perceived failure of global approaches.

‘Innovating Climate Governance: Moving Beyond Experiments' recognises the growing significance of such experimentation, but also the risks of fragmentation that this carries.

By analysing over fifty empirical cases internationally, the book examines how the outcomes of these experiments can lead to changes in rules, practices, norms and arrangements in the response to climate change more broadly.

The book seeks to understand how experiments in governance can become embedded, through processes of scaling up, replication, circulation and institutionalisation.

Understanding how innovations can spread from the local to the global, with consequent transformative effects for society, is a crucial question. The answers will determine the effectiveness, desirability, and impact of local climate action in years to come.

'Innovating Climate Governance: Moving Beyond Experiments' is an ideal resource for academics and practitioners involved in studying, developing and evaluating climate governance.
