Implementing Climate Change Policy: Looking Forward to the Hard Part

February 5 - December 31, 1969 Host Environmental Law Institute, UVA Law, Vanderbilt Law, Columbia Law

Implementing the new regulatory scheme will be a massive and difficult undertaking. Billions of dollars will hinge on each of numerous implementation decisions. This one- and one-half day conference will bring together leading government officials, academics, NGOs and private practitioners to explore these issues:

  • The dozens of rulemakings required of EPA, DOE, and other agencies
  • Creating the machinery for markets and offsets
  • Managing the transition for key sectors (fossil and renewable energy, agriculture, forestry)
  • Linkages to the international climate and trade systems
  • State and local roles
  • Affecting individual and corporate behavior
  • Equity and environmental justice issues

Conference co-chairs:
Prof. Jonathan Z. Cannon, University of Virginia Law School
Prof. Michael B. Gerrard, Columbia Law School
Prof. Michael P. Vandenbergh, Vanderbilt Law School
