Summary: "This book is a valuable tool for the negotiations." - Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Prime Minister of Denmark and President of the 15th Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change "The world desperately needs a global climate change agreement, and this impressive collection of scholarly work highlights the essential challenges facing global leaders, and outlines possible paths to reach such an agreement." - Eileen Claussen, President, Pew Center on Global Climate Change
Most agree that scientifically sound, economically rational, and politically pragmatic post-2012 international policies are vital to address global climate change. The Harvard Project on International Climate Agreements seeks to identify key design elements of such climate change policies. The project 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 purpose of the Harvard Project on International Climate Agreements is not to become an advocate for any single policy but rather to present the best possible information and analysis. Post-Kyoto International Climate Policy: Summary for Policymakers provides a thorough overview of this important project and points the way forward through the full range of options concerning mitigation, adaptation, technology, and finance.
