The ‘what to do’ in form of lighthouse projects is easily identified, but it is the large ‘space in between them’ that has to be filled: for this, the actors of the ICR, of which environment ministers form an essential part, need to understand why scaling up has hardly worked anywhere.

However, it is questionable whether the set-up of a whole new bureaucracy consisting of an increasing multitude of bodies and the mobilisation of thousands of participants in annual ‘climate summits’ was really necessary to achieve these outcomes. 25 In view of the lack of energy within the international process (see Chapter╯12) and the danger of massive duplication of costly processes and institutions with suboptimal performance, a pause for reflection, assessment, and orientation is needed: Are we still doing the right things, 20 years after beginning the process?
