Climate policy implementation tracking framework

Countries around the world are increasingly developing policies to address climate change and mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While this trend is encouraging, policies will only be successful in meeting the climate challenge to the extent that they are fully implemented. Tracking the progress of a diverse range of climate-related policies in a consistent manner has presented a challenge to analysts, advocates, and policymakers. This paper offers a framework for tracking climate policies through the process of adoption, implementation, and eventually to impact.
