In the recent years there has been a surge of climate orchestration platforms aimed at accelerating, managing and steering non-state climate actions. These platforms are voluntary, indirect and soft mode of governance, with the potential to catalyze climate actions aimed at achieving mitigation and adaptation goals. The literature review on the topic reveals a lack of understanding of these orchestration initiatives in the national, regional and local levels, in the field of climate governance, with most of the studies focused on global ones. Thus, this research aimed to analyzing in what way and to what extent national, regional and local orchestrators are effective in contributing to solving the problem of climate change and creating legitimacy, while mobilizing a broad support for this goal. This research contributes to the studies on climate orchestration, transnational governance, and to some extent the work on global climate governance. It does so by enhancing our understanding on the performance and legitimacy of climate action platforms, and their role in global climate governance.
