The main instrument governing global efforts to address climate change is the Paris Agreement. The 2015 Paris Climate Agreement calls for ever greater transparency from countries about their voluntary climate actions. Such transparency is assumed to stimulate ambitious climate action. Yet does transparency generate such transformative effects and under what conditions? This PhD addresses this urgent question by assessing how developed and developing countries’ participation in global climate transparency mechanisms relates to domestic policy making for climate action.
