Book abstract: The Harvard Project on International Climate Agreements seeks to identify key design elements of a scientifically sound, economically rational, and politically pragmatic post-2012 international policy architecture for global climate change. It draws upon leading thinkers from academia, private industry, government, and non-governmental organizations from around the world to construct a small set of promising policy frameworks and then disseminate and discuss the design elements and frameworks with decision-makers. The Project is directed by Robert N. Stavins, Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. This volume is a highly topical contribution to climate policy debates that searches for a new treaty to succeed Kyoto when it expires in 2012. The Harvard Project is entirely non-partisan and is the world's most comprehensive and authoritative study of all aspects of climate policy whose advice is sought by the UN and national governments. Distils key findings from the Harvard Project into an easy reference for policymakers, journalists, climate activists, and amateurs with an interest in climate policy.
