Through an eclectic theoretical approach drawing on theory on regime complexes and transnational climate governance, orchestration theory and the schools of new institutionalism, this research paper presents a qualitative assessment on how non-state actors engagement in transnational climate governance is steered by the initiative of the UN Secretary General, the UNFCCC Secretariat and the COP presidents of Peru and France, Lima-Paris Action Agenda (LPAA). Further it evaluates what forms of climate governance that are promoted by the climate initiatives under the LPAA umbrella. It concludes that LPAA can be regarded as an orchestrator in the sense that it, by convening actors and existing initiatives form different sectors, steers non-state actors to engage in different forms of multi-stakeholder “cooperative initiatives" by providing incentives and an institutional framework that legitimizes the actions of the initiatives and the actors involved. The forms of climate governance that are promoted are mainly steering through information sharing and constitution of good climate practices and through capacity building and implementation based on voluntary goal setting and public reporting on progress.
