As the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012, the international policy community is exploring options for a future climate policy framework. Among the various proposals, so-called sectoral approaches have featured prominently, increasingly gaining political momentum. Yet, there is considerable confusion as to what a sectoral approach is. This talk identifies different types of sectoral approaches and analyses the politics behind key proposals.
