Climate, energy and the environment

Climate, energy & the environment cluster

The Climate, energy and environment cluster has four broad regulatory and governance research themes:

1) identifying obstacles and options for effective energy governance, including credible networked governance strategies through which key state and non-state actors might achieve a transition to a low carbon economy;

2) analysing state and private governance mechanisms for mitigating climate change including the role of transnational activist networks, norm entrepreneurs and market and investor-targeted strategies;

3) examining the opportunities and constraints of the green economy in transforming infrastructure and urban development and reducing their negative impact on the environment; and

4) exploring creative regulatory solutions to transnational environmental problems such as threats to biodiversity.
