On the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, Dahdaleh Institute Faculty Member Idil Boran, who leads the Synergies of Planetary Health Research Initiative,co-authored an opinion article in Global Policy with Harro Van Asselt, Sander Chan, Thomas Hale, Lukas Hermwille and Charles Roger.

Based on a research article by a larger group of co-authors, and forthcoming in the same journal in early 2021, this opinion article provides a summary evaluation of the progress of activities and efforts to mobilize non-state and subnational actors.

The authors highlight three areas requiring attention for strengthening actions by non-state and subnational actors in the next decade, underscoring the need to:

  • drive national implementation and ambition
  • enable subnational and non-state climate action in developing and emerging economies
  • broaden climate action and maximizing sustainable development synergies.
