Abstract

Climate change and related challenges are cross-border in nature, which requires international cooperation to address them. An increasing number of international organizations (IOs) across a large number of issue areas, such as the European Union (EU) and various United Nations (UN) agencies in health, migration, development, and security, have engaged in climate governance, often pushed for by IO policy-makers. The engagement of IOs in climate governance is particularly important as climate change integration in various issue areas, e.g. through mainstreaming, has been shown to improve the prospects of effective adaptation and mitigation responses. This panel attempts to map and explain differences in the extent to which IOs engage into climate governance, across IOs, issue areas, and over time. Scholarly interest in climate as a cross-border issue has increased in recent years, yet most global environmental governance literature has focused on institutional fragmentation and polycentrism. Here we seek to give IOs’ role in global climate governance greater room in the discussion.
