Is an exclusive climate club (including sectoral bilateral initiatives such as the transatlantic initiative for a 'Global Steel and Aluminum Arrangement') or an inclusive, cooperative, and thematically broader climate alliance (as outlined by the German G-7 Presidency's climate club proposal) best suited to address the challenge of multilateral climate and trade governance? Are the two approaches mutually exclusive, can they be aligned, or are they even synergistic? How could they complement each other, if at all, and which governance structure would be conducive to achieving respective objectives?
