The scale, speed and scope required for executing, administering, and managing the Project rationalise some key changes in the mode of governance to accelerate climate mobilisation. To mobilise essential labour and financial resources for wartime requirements as quickly and as efficiently as possible, profound changes occurred in the administration and direction of the economy, especially in democratic capitalist states. The first form involved the direct administration of human, financial, and material resources, which involved the coercion of persons and groups through conscription, rationing of goods, new taxation measures, and restrictions of unessential production. The story of wartime governance underscores the essential role of central planning in executing large-scale and aggressive mobilisations rapidly. In the post-war world, central planning persisted, thus placing the government as the focal actor in directing the interests of the state. At wartime, the economy was shifted towards greater central planning so that controls could be placed to ensure rapid munitions production and their deployment to battlefields.
