Climate Change Policy in the Age of Trump 

This webcast has already taken place. To view a recording, please click here.

Join us for a new webcast with Professor Robert Stavins, the Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government at Harvard Kennedy School. 

During this 45-minute webcast, Professor Stavins will review how the science of climate change leads to the economics of climate change and how that leads to the key geopolitical challenges presented by this global commons problem. He will review the Paris Agreement and emphasize how it is a departure from twenty years of climate negotiations. 

Given that national policies are key, Stavins will also address the types of policies that countries have put in place and may launch in the future. This raises the question of how the United States will proceed with the new Trump administration. Stavins will examine the path the administration has taken and is likely to take in the future with domestic climate policy, and then he will turn to explore the Trump administration’s approach in the international domain. He will conclude with reflections on the path ahead for the Paris Agreement. 

There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers with Professor Stavins at the end.
