This chapter provides an overview of climate politics and policies in the US, the EU, and Brazil from 1992 to the present day. It analyzes the historical low level of climate change mitigation commitment of the US and Brazil, and the drivers behind the EU’s long-standing activism in global climate governance, reflecting on the challenges that the three economies face in transitioning to low carbon development.
