This chapter examines the causes and possible implications of climate change-associated political action in North America, from continental to governance levels. It aims to explore four broad questions in North American climate change that are essential in understanding the developments in North America's climate change policy making and politics: The new or emerging practices and policies in the area of climate change being made in North America; the roles major public, private, and civil society actors play and how they interact in making governance and policy; the ways climate change initiatives and policies diffused across jurisdictions; the extent to which North American climate change strategy can be characterized as emerging or existing multilevel governance; and whether federal and local institutions across the continent are facilitating or impending these developments.

Keywords:   North America, climate change, governance, policy making, politics
