Learning Sessions to Inform New York's Development of an Economy-Wide Cap-and-Invest Program
A webinar series by the Georgetown Climate Center, Columbia University's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, and Resources for the Future
As New York State works to develop the regulations to implement its groundbreaking economy wide climate pollution program, Georgetown Climate Center, Columbia's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, and Resources for the Future will sponsor a series of independent Zoom Learning Sessions for New York policy makers and stakeholders to inform the development of the New York Cap-and-Invest (NYCI) program. The series will bring important information from expert speakers and respondents on key cap-and-invest design questions to inform the discussions between New York state officials, stakeholders and the general public.
The series is open to anyone who registers. The webinars will be recorded and made available online following each session to provide for wider access to all. Subsequent sessions are being organized and will be announced on the GCC website as topics and speakers are confirmed.
