Global Climate System
The flagship activity of the Earth System Governance Project on global climate governance will be linked to the research programme of the Global Carbon Project, a joint project under the Earth System Science Partnership. Even though the study of earth system governance goes beyond the core questions of the Global Carbon Project, there are complementarities between the two initiatives: studies of earth system governance in the context of coupled human and natural systems can be expected to yield insights related to the role of humans and societal institutions as drivers of change as well as the ways that humans are likely to organize themselves in the face of change. In particular, complementarities with the Global Carbon Project lie with Task 3.2.3 of its Science Plan that envisions research for designing carbon management institutions and multilevel governance for urban carbon management.
