Abstract

KEY MESSAGES
• ACE objectives are implicitly grounded in either a democratization or a neoliberal narrative of climate action,
generating profound ambiguity.
• The ambiguity surrounding ACE objectives diminishes ACE’s effectiveness by making it difficult to formulate and
agree on goals that are measurable, specific, and attainable.
• Clarification of ACE narratives and objectives when engaging in ACE implementation, dialogues or negotiations
is essential to set clear targets and collective goals.
• Explicit objectives, concrete goals and a crosscutting approach can facilitate action and a more balanced
implementation of the six pillars of ACE.
• Steering ACE towards specific roles (i.e. ACE as a monitor, accelerator or networker) can provide a first step
towards clarifying the objectives of ACE.
