A Panel Discussion and Public Debate in London

For some the issue is how to reform the CDM by scaling up, reducing costs and improving governance. For others the CDM is flawed by design.
This public event will explore these debates, which go to the heart of a 3 year project on The Governance of Clean Development: CDM and Beyond led by Professor Peter Newell, which explores the politics and governance of clean development in the energy sector through the CDM and through other initiatives of a growing range of public and private actors.

The event brings together leading actors and specialists in the field to debate these issues based on some of the findings of the research.
