There are many different schools and approaches on how to reform global environmental governance. Deep institutional reform builds on the idea that, if you manage to reform critical pillars of global environmental governance, you create an architecture that is better able to deal with challenges. Proposals to do so include reforming UNEP, for example. Network revolutions is another approach, focused on strengthening partnerships between states or public and private actors. Legal transformations is a third approach that creates different interpretations of existing law to push us towards sustainability. Cosmopolitan or global democracy is the fourth approach, which allows for wider participation from citizens in decision making. What are the distributional implications of these proposals and how well do they function?
