Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Joyeeta Gupta’s analytical history tour of a quarter-century of climate change negotiations provides a good entry point for newcomers and a pause for reflection by veterans. The former will benefit from the foundations of her analysis in climate science and sustainability, while the latter will be intrigued by her outreach to the domains of international law and human rights."
Michael Zammit Cutajar, Executive Secretary, UNFCCC secretariat, 1991–2002, and Chairman, Guardian of Future Generations, under the Sustainable Development Act (2012), Malta

"This is an authoritative account of the history and complex political developments surrounding climate governance negotiation. Joyeeta Gupta has created a well-organised and interesting narrative which will be extremely useful for anyone interested in climate change issues."
Youba Sokona, Board Member, South Centre; Coordinator of the African Climate Policy Centre (ACPC) at the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA); and co-chair of the IPCC Working Group III

"This book provides an important and systematic knowledge infrastructure for people to think about governance for protecting climate as a global public good."
Zou Ji, Deputy Director General, National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation
