Land, Energy, and Climate

William Moomaw
GDAE is excited to announce the launch of a new research area in Land, Energy, and Climate. Under the direction of GDAE Co-Director Dr. William Moomaw, this research seeks to apply tools of scientific and economic analysis to pressing problems of the biosphere. The research program builds on earlier work on climate change and cost-benefit analysis by GDAE Research Associates Frank Ackerman and Liz Stanton.

Publications will address a variety of current issues, including:
  • Global atmospheric change that threatens to destabilize the planet’s climate
  • Changes to land and water ecosystems that can undermine the basis for a sustainable human economy
  • Utilizing Sustainable Development Diplomacy to create solutions to these problems through innovative technologies, policies and practices
  • Implementing restorative development actions to restore lost ecosystem functions.
Recent publications include: The Land, Energy, and Climate webpage will be updated with an ongoing series of articles and reports concerning climate change, fisheries, agriculture, and the development of renewable energy systems.
