Abstract

This chapter uses climate change governance to illustrate how policymakers can engage in an integrated analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of defining agency jurisdiction along each of the dimensions for different governmental functions. In particular, the chapter assesses and considers alternatives to the interjurisdictional frameworks that have begun to develop, with a three-part focus on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and geoengineering activities. Though undoubtedly contextual within these three general categories of emerging governance, each presents challenges and implies different tradeoffs that are likely to be more consistent with particular types of allocations. The chapter extrapolates from the insights from the book's earlier case studies and draws plausible inferences based on justifications for particular allocations to propose configurations for these three emerging regulatory regimes. Finally, the chapter explains how climate change governance illustrates the merit of integrating into institutional design strategies that promote learning about the efficacy of adopted allocations.

Keywords: agency jurisdiction, climate change governance, geoengineering, governmental function, institutional design
