CCI Seminar: Raising Climate Policy Ambition through Engaging Policy

The biggest greenhouse gas emitters – the US, China, and EU – are currently making progress on climate change. But, just below these countries on the emitters list, fast emerging economies that need to take bold action have only taken limited steps because of capacity limits. The Climate Policy Lab at Fletcher is engaging twelve countries (e.g., Indonesia, South Africa, Ethiopia, Vietnam) with its policy gap analysis (PGA) methodology to see what policies work, which don't, and why. This talk will cover the PGA process, talk about results, and discuss evolving partner country engagements.

Speaker: Travis Franck, Assistant Research Professor, Tufts Fletcher School
