Adapting to Climate Change

About
Phase One
Publications

  

Domestic Adaptation Policy 
This research seeks to develop effective federal, state, and local policy options aimed at adapting to the likely impacts of climate change. This will involve designing a framework for creating public policy responses that are targeted, comprehensive, and cost-effective. The work, involving both natural and social scientists, will consider private and public decision making in the context of long-term uncertainty; the role of market-like mechanisms, including crop and flood insurance; the tensions between government entities in developing legislative, regulatory, and fiscal mandates; and ways in which compensation could be provided for those harmed by climate change.
