De Catch-22 van het internationale klimaatbeleid

February 2014 – The Catch-22 of International Climate Policy. In this column, I argue that to achieve meaningful outcomes of the yearly ‘COP’ international climate conferences more bottom-up support is needed. However, in order to measure and add up the outcomes of these bottom-up actions in an unequivocal way, an international agreement would be needed. Is this situation a typical catch-22? Not completely, as local initiatives can grow without any international agreement. There will arrive a moment, however, that all these initiatives will need to be categorized and judged on their contribution to solving the global problem.
