Climate Change and Energy: Policymaking for the Long Term is a six-day executive program led by distinguished Harvard professor and leading climate expert, Robert Stavins.
You will join with other public-policy makers and corporate leaders from around the world in an intellectually-stimulating learning environment learn more about climate change and the policy challenges it presents. Lectures, class discussions, case studies and group work will examine new policy perspectives distilled from cutting-edge research.
You'll also learn analytical tools and study conceptual frameworks, all of which will help you understand:
- The scientific basis of climate change—its causes and consequences
- The economics underlying effective policy to address climate change
- The design and implementation of policies at the sub-national, national, regional (groups of nations) and global levels to address climate change
- Approaches for communities and nations to adapt to climate change and to make their infrastructure more resilient in the face of a warming and disrupted climate
- The sometimes conflicting imperatives of economic development—especially in developing countries—and of reducing emissions that cause climate change
- The nature of the transformation in energy systems that will be required to mitigate climate change
