Abstract

The 19th Conference of the Parties (COP19) to the United Nations Framework Committee on Climate Change concluded in November 2013 with limited progress toward reducing global emissions of greenhouse gases. However, while international negotiations on climate change have stalled, regional initiatives are quietly starting to play an important role in the fight to subvert catastrophic climate change. Examples include the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative to reduce emissions in the northeast United States and the ClimAct Regions Project, which aims to reduce greenhouse emissions in 60 regions and provinces of Europe.
