This article constructs a framework for understanding and explaining the governance of clean development (CD) in order to generate insights about who is governing it, by what means, for whom and how effectively. Such a framework usefully highlights governance gaps and blind spots, issues of policy coherence and co-ordination, and the distributional consequences of existing patterns of CD governance. It points to the need to construct forms of governance whch are mutually reinforcing, which avoid duplication and which provide incentives to address the energy needs of the very poorest, whose interests may otherwise be overlooked.
