A New Climate Agreement in 2015: Opportunities and Challenges

The countries of the world have agreed to agree—on a new international climate agreement, by late 2015, at the annual UN climate-change conference, to be held in Paris. This agreement will be very different from the Kyoto Protocol—the only existing multilateral agreement on climate change. The core challenge will be to balance participation (in general more is better, but some participants are more important than others); ambition (that is, how far countries are willing to go in reducing emissions); and compliance (whether the agreement is structured such that countries will do what they say they will).
