Developing policy regimes for combating climate change
A CAGE/CCCEP workshop

Together with the CCCEP and with support from the ESRC, CAGE was a sponsor of a workshop on global climate change policy jointly with the Granthan Institute for Climate Change Policy at the LSE and the Climate Change Initiative in the Centre for the Study of International Economic Relations at Western Ontario Canada.
