Breakfast with Prof Robert N Stavins “An economist on Climate Change, Geopolitics and Policies … Really??”

B

Thursday, May 3, 2018, 8:30 AM-10:30 AM @ Near Sixth Avenue MRT. Sign up at Eventbrite.

We are honoured to host Prof Stavins, the A.J. Meyer Professor of Energy & Economic Development at the Harvard Kennedy School, Director of the Harvard Environmental Economics Program, Director of Graduate Studies for the Doctoral Programs in Public Policy and Political Economy & Government, Co-Chair of the Harvard Business School Kennedy School Joint Degree Programs, and Director of the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements.
His list of achievements, accolades, and positions is incredible, amongst which he was a former Chairman of the Environmental Economics Advisory Committee of the US EPA’s Science Advisory Board; and he has been a consultant to several US Administrations, the World Bank, the United Nations, other state and national governments, private foundations and firms.

His research has focussed on diverse areas of environmental economics and policy, and he will start the breakfast discussion by positing the argument that you need an economic perspective to truly begin to grasp the issue of global climate change: the natural vs the man-made, private vs public interests, single country vs multi-lateral vs international positions, the carbon pricing market… what is the path towards the Paris Agreement?

Please join us for a small group breakfast, space is limited.
