Alex Evans – Global Framework for Climate Change

Jun 10, 2009 Comments Off on Alex Evans – Global Framework for Climate Change by

Alex Evans’ report on climate change and global institutional reform was published by the Center on International Co-operation earlier this year. He presented the case for basing a framework for dealing with the climate crisis on a scientifically derived stabilisation target. Such a framework should also share the global carbon budget out between the world’s nations according to a transparent, equitable formula.

Alex Evans is a Non-Resident Fellow at the Center on International Cooperation (CIC) at New York University, where he runs CIC’s work on climate change and global public goods. He was seconded to the UN in 2007 as part of the team coordinating the Secretary-General’s high level event on climate change. He has recently completed a joint CIC – Chatham House project on the international implications of rising food prices. From 2003 to 2006, Alex was Special Adviser to Hilary Benn, then the UK Secretary of State for International Development.
