Climate, energy and environmental policy: from formulation to implementation
About the theme:
The sustained global economic growth achieved over the past half century has transformed the lives of billions of people, yet this has not come without costs. Increased economic activity has led to greater energy demands and reliance on non-renewable resources and widespread environmental degradation including climate change, deforestation, and high levels of air and water pollution. The challenge therefore facing governments and policymakers is to maximise the opportunities derived from increased economic activity and growth, while minimising adverse environmental impacts.
This Collection invites research (empirical, methodological and theoretical) concerned with all aspects of the formulation, adoption, and implementation of climate, energy, and environmental policies.
