Our political, policy and diplomatic expertise shapes climate and energy solutions
Climate Advisers conducted an analysis of all the Obama-era climate policies on the books and in the pipeline at the end of that administration, from the Clean Power Plan to the SNAP Status Change Rule 21.
To inform public debate on these issues, Climate Advisers analyzed whether carbon border measures would comply with World Trade Organization obligations.
America must address climate change to be competitive on the world stage – and we can do it in a way that addresses both policy and political concerns.
Climate Advisers created the first legal analysis answering the riddle of how to negotiate a strong international climate agreement that did not necessitate a supermajority in the Senate. The answer is for the United States to negotiate climate change executive agreements.
Both U.S. and international negotiators are keeping this advice firmly in mind as they elaborate the content of new climate agreements in order to secure the widest possible participation, including from the United States.
Recently, Climate Advisers has partnered with the governments of the United States, Japan, Norway and Denmark, as well as the World Bank, the World Economic Forum and the UN Secretary-General to elevate new policy ideas and promote international climate cooperation.
We have strategic relationships with many of the world’s leading climate think tanks, including The Brookings Institution, Center for American Progress, Center for Global Development and Resources for the Future – and we frequently organize joint events and publish cobranded reports. And we have prepared original political and policy analysis for the world’s most recognized environment and development advocates, including World Wildlife Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, Oxfam and Union of Concerned Scientists.
