This chapter begins with a discussion of the science of climate change, and its implications for the environment, human health, and the global economy. It then examines how the evolving political and economic context has paralyzed multilateral negotiations, both with respect to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and with respect to multilateral trade negotiations at the WTO. It argues that the shifting fortunes of developed and emerging economies have altered the dynamics of global governance, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   climate change, mitigation, adaptation, multilateral trade negotiations, global governance
