Developing a Federal Framework for Climate Change Policy

Under the guidance of the faculty instructor, and a sponsoring foundation, the research team will develop strategies to help guide the federal government in delivering the nation’s climate change commitments.  The research focuses on two major topics:  (1) the legal and policy considerations for an inventory and road map of potential carbon emissions reductions across the federal government; and (2) evaluating federal governing structures to coordinate emissions reductions initiatives and adaptation/resilience actions across federal agencies and with the states.
