Climate activists in the 1970s called for more effective political action on global warming and other environmental abnormalities, beginning the transition of climate change from exclusively a scientific issue to a political one. Since then, global policy has focused on cooperation and the establishment of guidelines with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), a largely accepted international agreement. But current trends in policy are shifting from the previous mitigation goal to one centered on adaptation. In the United States, partisan division on policy approaches to address climate change have intensified, with the widest partisan gap seen in 2020. Over climate policy’s history, concerns have been raised about the treatment of developing nations and a lack of gender specific action. Join our experts as we find out what comes after the Paris Agreement and discuss climate policy in the face of polarization, disproportionate impacts, and the new focus on vulnerability-based approaches.
