Webinar examining the political economy of supply-side climate policies. 

These policies are being designed and advocated by diverse and vast coalitions and include a variety of instruments at different scales to achieve the ambition of making dramatic cuts in carbon dioxide emissions

‘The solution is clear: fossil fuels must be kept in the ground.’ 101 Nobel Laureates’ Statement to Climate Summit World Leaders, 21/4/2021

The challenge is to articulate political positions, institutional structures, and policy tools that can help formulate a range of concrete, realistic and widely applicable proposals to substantiate the potential of supply-side climate policies to contribute to the transformation of the global economy.

The webinar will offer the opportunity to preview and discuss the articles for the forthcoming Global Environmental Politics Special Issue on Supply Side Climate Policies.
