About 4CMR

The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) produces interdisciplinary scholarly research to identify and assess policies that reduce the risks of climate change while allowing for global economic development. We do this through the study of both mitigation and adaptation, using a combination of tools from economic, energy, environmental and legal analysis. We also work with public and private sector organisations to apply our research in facilitating design and adoption of effective policies and practices.
