This chapter makes use of and combines concepts from coalition theory and applied integrated assessment modeling to provide some insights for climate governance. The chapter first identifies the key issues discussed in the debate on climate architectures and desirable features for future climate agreements. Then, the chapter analyze how coalition theory can contribute to that debate and the chapter gives some numerical illustrations by using an integrated assessment economy-climate model. Particular attention is devoted to the stability versus efficiency of agreements, membership rules and to the role of transfers to implement such agreements.
