Rethinking the green state beyond the Global North: a South African climate change case study
Published Online: May 31 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.473
We assess South Africa's policy performance using the following criteria: institutionalization of ecological values; state capacity for environmentally beneficial outcomes; ecological modernization; and democratic participation. We argue that South Africa has tentatively moved towards becoming a green state. However initiatives suffer from weak implementation and enforcement, and well‐entrenched patterns of energy‐intensive accumulation persist.
