In conjunction with publishers Taylor & Francis, Climate Strategies supports the editorial development of the Climate Policy Journal (CPJ) – a leading publication with research, analysis, review and discussion of responses to climate change.
The journal aims to make complex, policy-related analysis of climate change issues accessible to a wide audience and to facilitate debate between diverse constituencies. For the current issue, please click here.
CPJ has an open call for proposals, seeking papers for the upcoming special issue:
Under the broad theme, contributions are welcome that address:
- Development Pathways
- Mitigation Pathways
- Structural Transitions
- Methodological Approaches and Advances
Abstracts (max 400 words) should be submitted for consideration by the Guest Editors to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 June 2018.
CPJ had a collection of free to access papers that coincided with the climate change negotiations in Bonn (May 2018):
Together, these papers go beyond the headlines to explore what lies behind particular NDCs – what they mean in practice, on the ground – and what commitments we might expect from countries in the future, as they seek to balance competing domestic forces and interests.
