The Rapid Mitigation Project requires a similar degree of multilateral cooperation including international trade of sustainable energy technology and renewable energy itself, skills and technology transfer, funding assistance for both mitigation and adaptation and some mechanisms for compensation following damages caused by a climate-related event. In high likelihood, similar scale, scope, speed and intensity of sociotechnical transition is needed for an accelerated approach to climate mitigation to transition the economy, and first its energy systems, to a low-carbon society. The necessary investment for the Rapid Mitigation Project calls for increased scale of available public finance and the speed at which it is collected. The conditions at wartime, where full employment was secured, is most likely replicated, or at least approached to a closer degree, by the Project as a result of intensive labour mobilisation strategies. State-led policy and strategies, without due consideration of the diverse social processes, would stand weakly as an effective approach for rapid mitigation.
