This chapter discusses institutional interplay and its consequences in light of increased global governance. The role of states on inter-institutional synergy is measured, and institutional interaction management issues are examined. Interplay management as a tool for mitigating conflict between global climate governance regimes is addressed. Institutional complex transitions and their management are examined, along with the role of interplay management in the institutional complex. The driving forces of institutional complexes are explored through investigating the factors accounting for balancing competing concerns and stability and change. The integration of energy, development, and climate change policy concerns with their associated institutional complex is explored.

Keywords:   institutional interplay, inter-institutional synergy, interplay management, institutional complex, climate change policy, global climate governance
