Success in the energy transition will depend on the focused attention of major emitters (China, the United States, the European Union, India) and the engagement of emerging and developing economies that will account for over half of global emissions through 2050. Could intensifying conflicts—between the United States and China, between Russia and Ukraine, across the Middle East—derail major powers from delivering on climate pledges? How might domestic politics and national expectations influence action on climate change? What measures are necessary to ensure that developing economies support ambition for climate action?
