In the current global moment, countries around the world-- as well as cities, states, and businesses --are being called upon to accelerate the economic transition toward a cleaner, lower-emissions future. The policy process of engaging stakeholders, scoping possible opportunities for action, establishing targets, and implementing change requires tight integration of analysis, engagement, and communications. Moreover, the integration of broad and diverse non-state actions and ambition to enhance national planning is an essential component of raising ambition globally. Our work at CGS builds a model integrating engagement, analysis, and multi-level governance that can provide the driving force for enhanced ambition.
