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 (reducing climate change) and adaptation (reducing the risks when climate change does occur), using a combination of tools from economic, energy, environmental, health 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.
