Many organisations have sought to influence the outcome of the international public policy process on climate change. This research compares two contrasting non-governmental network organisations that were particularly important and influential participants in the process of developing international public policy on climate change. These are Climate Action Network and Global Climate Coalition, both formed in 1989; the former by a range of international environmental organisations and the latter by US business organisations. This research examines the emergence of both these organisations and the major role played by each of these organisations in forming broad competing international climate change policy coalitions including state and non-state actors. It concludes that they were both very strategic actors in an extremely complex policy process.
