The Good, the Bad, and the Even Worse: Explaining Variation in the Performance in the Performance of Energy Partnerships

Within the context of agency beyond the state, one paramount question is that of the wider effectiveness of governance instruments beyond international collaboration or top-down policy making. Why are some multi-stakeholder partnerships for sustainable development successfully addressing pressing environmental challenges while others have hardly any traceable results? This paper theorizes the variation in performance between the most effective and the least effective CSD partnerships in the sustainable energy sector.
