The G-20 and Climate Change: Beyond Goal Setting at Brisbane

Joshua Busby | December 2013


The G-20 can do more to fight climate change—not only do its members include the biggest greenhouse gas emitters in the world, but its summit process is a vital forum for multilateral cooperation.

Ahead of the next summit in Australia in 2014, the Stanley Center contributed two policy papers focused on the climate change agenda as part of a series written for G-20 countries and presented at a meeting of the “Think20” network of experts in Sydney on December 11.

A center-commissioned paper by climate expert Joshua Busby of the University of Texas-Austin outlines possible next steps to phase down the use of hydrofluorocarbons.
