Abstract

Despite notable advances in the ?climate change-development? discourse and the rapid evolution of the climate-finance architecture, many of the fundamentally politicised issues that shape the existing dilemma on how to confront global climate change have been avoided or delayed. A largely market-driven response has not advanced an accountability-driven, long-term agenda, and competing interests continue to shape the discourse on adaptation and mitigation?thus influencing whose risk becomes predominant and whose impacts and losses are prioritised within and between states.
