Dear readers,

The G20 summit in Hamburg on 7 and 8 July 2017 was the acid test at the highest level for global climate protection after the United States announced its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement. In an unprecedented act of isolating a single country, the remaining "G19" states reaffirmed their commitment to the Agreement and also clearly stated that it was "irreversible". With this, a new chapter in international climate policy has begun. Will the rest of the world succeed in coordinating an effective global climate policy despite the withdrawal of US President Trump? Might the international community succeed in not just compensating for the American contribution, but also in seizing the momentum that has arisen following the decision by the US? In the end, the World Community might thus even defy Trump through more far-reaching measures. A research team at the Wuppertal Institute tackled these questions in an in brief and shows how those countries that are interested in protecting the climate can best come together to successfully carry forward the Paris Agreement and global climate policy.

Thanks for your interest,
Kerstin Eiwen & Christin Hasken
