We are an academic research group of faculty, staff and students dedicated to informing stakeholders in the area of climate change policy, especially in regard to reducing (mitigating) the risks of climate change. We have a strong focus on policies that affect and are affected by the economy and the social and technological factors that drive it. Since we are not an advocacy organisation, we don't propose particular policies. Instead, we use advanced models of energy, environmental and economic (E3) systems to assess the impacts and effectiveness of climate change policies at reducing climate risks under well-defined scenarios of technology innovation, sustainable development and policy implementation. We then place these findings into a format suited to the needs and interests of diverse stakeholder groups, informing rather than advising, and educating rather than advocating.
Our work builds a better capacity for national and international organisations to systematically identify, assess and select the most effective policies for climate change risk reduction.
How do we inform?
On this Engagement site, we have collected together the various ways in which we help educate individuals, organisations, communities and nations on the role of economic, energy and environmental policies in reducing the risks of climate change. You will find resources that describe our work, summarise the implications for your policy decisions, and connect you to other organisations with related interests, goals and information.
