Management of the Greenhouse Effect at the Local and Regional Authority Level. An Analysis Based on Climate Policy

The aim of the research project entitled "Management of the Greenhouse Effect at the Local and Regional Authority Level: An Analysis Based on Regional Policy" (under the Ministry of Agriculture and Sustainable Development GICC programme) is to observe the way in which climate change is incorporated into local and regional public policy. The main question is to find out in what ways local and regional authorities can participate effectively in reducing global impacts.
The research relates essentially to the regional level and aims to identify and understand the obstacles to and catalysts for integrating climate change into regional policy: what conditions determine whether concerns relating to climate change make it onto the regional scene and how are they incorporated into local and regional authority policy? How are local and regional climate policies formulated and on what elements are they based? Who are the players and what action do they take?
