Broad international treaties attempting to tackle climate change have had limited effects at best, leading a handful of countries and jurisdictions to experiment with alternative strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This conference will study (1) the effectiveness of these various strategies, (2) whether they are politically viable, and (3) whether they can be scaled up. Academics and practitioners will compare and contrast experiences in both Europe and the United States in the hopes of designing more effective climate policy on both sides of the Atlantic.
The aim of the conference is to study (1) the effectiveness of these various strategies, (2) whether they are politically viable in the long run, and (3) whether they can be scaled up. Academic researchers and practitioners will present, and contrast the experiences in Europe and the United States.
The Keynote address will be given by Gernot Wagner, Senior Economist at the Environmental Defense Fund, co-author of Climate Shock, which was short-listed by the Financial Times as book of the year.
