Climate change governance: global regimes, national interests, local norms

Date: Thursday 22 August
Time: 12:30-13:30
Venue: Bergen Global, Jekteviksbakken 31

This event is part of the Bergen Exchanges 2019. For a full schedule of the week’s events, see here.

Great efforts are invested in negotiations to secure international agreement on regulatory systems to limit global warming. But are global regimes for climate change mitigation – such as deforestation prevention programmes – really able to regulate policies and practice at the local level? How do national politics and local norms and power structures influence the content and force of regulatory frameworks as global norms move from the international to the national level, and to local communities and contexts? Based on an emerging project that will examine deforestation prevention projects across the Amazon, this panel discusses the challenges of understanding these shifting regulatory landscapes and their significance.
