Can the development of climate policies learn from adaptive management techniques?

Posted on 12th August 2015

Friederike E. L. Otto, David J. Frame, Alexander Otto & Myles R. Allen (2105) Embracing uncertainty in climate change policy Nature Climate Change doi:10.1038/nclimate2716 Abstract The ‘pledge and review’ approach to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions presents an opportunity to link mitigation goals explicitly to the evolving climate response. This seems desirable because the progression from the […]
