This chapter discusses the extent to which the challenges of international climate policies and other governance issues can be understood as factors that reduce the legitimacy and effectiveness of the climate policy. It examines these issues through the case study of the State of São Paulo, Brazil. The chapter discusses the role of developing countries in the development of the climate regime in this context and points out the hesitation of leading polluters in taking more responsibility to improve the international climate regime. It also highlights the development of alternative governmental policy structures initiated by local and state institutions. The chapter shows that these initiatives can have a significant impact at the state level, driving governments to promote environmentally friendly measures and assuming the main role in environmental education and awareness programs.
