Joe Biden has presented an ambitious climate policy agenda and he is committed to taking on a leadership role in the area of international climate action. Despite having achieved important results after his first 100 days in office, Biden faces difficult challenges when it comes to the domestic implementation of his agenda.
Biden’s climate policy agenda provides an important window of opportunity for transatlantic cooperation. Transatlantic partners can bring new momentum to international climate negotiations by working together in international cooperation formats.
By focussing their communication on a clear shared vision for the future, the partners can work together to bring about a global climate transformation. The phase-out of fossil fuels should be shaped into a consistent common narrative.
A deepening and strengthening of the transatlantic climate partnership in development cooperation would be an important response to existing geopolitical challenges. After all, it is precisely in the area of energy based relations with developing countries where the transatlantic partners are competing with countries like China and Russia.
