This position paper argues that progress in developing policies and programs to reduce GHG emissions and to develop adaptation measures are far too slow to ensure that we stay below a 2ºC rise in global temperature.
This paper proposes 16 high-level measures that will help to speed up the process. Their implementation would meet resistance today, but when climate change effects become more apparent, they will provide a useful roadmap for most developed countries.

Impact and Results
Impact of the paper has been modest to date, although Christiana Figueres called our draft of June 2017 "excellent". More help is needed by established organizations to obtain specific regional inputs in order to bring it to the next level.
