The key research questions are:

  1. What are the rationales for the UNFCCC to act as an orchestrator for each of the three areas?
  2. What are the risks and challenges associated with the UNFCCC taking on the role of orchestrator? And under which conditions would it be desirable that it adopts such a role?
  3. How could the role of the UNFCCC as orchestrator be enhanced for each of the three areas (and how would this role change under different post-2015 governance scenarios)?
