Climate change is arguably one of the most important global issues we face in the 21st century. It is widely recognized by scientists and many policymakers as posing significant risks, not only to the environment, but also society and the global economy. Governments have been attempting to address this difficult challenge since at least 1992—cooperatively through the United Nations and through national and subnational policy. Most governments are also making plans to adapt to the climate change that is likely to occur.
An Executive Program on Climate Change
Developed by Harvard Kennedy School faculty, Climate Change and Energy: Policymaking for the Long Term is a week-long executive program convening policymakers and corporate leaders from around the world to consider: the facts about climate change and its impacts; potential policies to address climate change; why some governments might choose to address climate change more or less vigorously; and how sub-national governments and non-governmental actors might complement action by national governments.
