On 1 June 2017, President Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Agreement, which was followed by the formal communication to the United Nations of its intent to withdraw. At the same time, important initiatives have emerged as direct and indirect responses to changes in government policies. The election of President Trump and the withdrawal of U.S. federal government from its various global and national competencies in climate and environmental protection and sustainable development have mobilized social movements and the private sector in the United States. In addition, to the improvement of the capacity of non-profits and civil society groups, the 2016 election of President Trump has led major corporations and business groups to take a clearer position on supporting climate protection and environmental integrity. In addition, several U.S. cities and states have announced that they will adhere to the climate agreement by looking at ways to reduce emissions, including negotiating contracts with local utilities to supply more renewable energy, building rapid transit programs and other infrastructure projects like improved wastewater treatment. These silverlinings are interesting that require integrated analysis.
