Climate Change Policy: Economics and Politics (Online)
Executive Certificate: This program is part of the Economic Development and Public Policy Executive Certificate series.
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
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.
