Climate Change Policy: Economics and Politics is an online executive program developed by Harvard Kennedy School faculty to address the significant challenge of climate change. Through an engaging virtual curriculum, participants will explore:
- Potential policies to reduce the emissions of the greenhouse gases that cause climate change
- Why some governments might choose to address climate change more or less vigorously
- How national governments cooperate to address climate-change – including an in-depth look at the Paris Agreement and its antecedents
- How sub-national governments might complement action by national governments
- Strategies to adapt to the impacts of climate change, especially in urban areas, and to enhance the resilience of infrastructure
Led by Professor Robert Stavins, this interactive program is designed for managers, analysts, and leaders from government, corporations, and non-governmental organizations from around the world. This five-day executive program will provide deep insights into the science, economics, and policy of climate change. Together with a global cohort, you will dive into cutting-edge research from the field and be introduced to analytical tools and conceptual frameworks to help you better understand climate-related policies.
