Project Report:
Solving the Climate Crisis through Regulations and Markets
- Investigates the causes of economic imbalances.
- Investigates the effect of the global financial system and/or the monetary system in fostering a sustainable economy.
- Investigates causes tending to destroy or impair the free-market system.
- Explores and develops market-based solutions.


This project will explore various aspects of climate change through the interplay of regulations and markets with important implications for climate policy.


Our project falls within the (1) and (4) categories of the Walker Foundation Grant Guideline topics. The proposed project will build on the CRM’s efforts to conduct research and policy work to advance our knowledge of how we can solve the climate crisis by leveraging both regulations and markets, and improve our understanding of the interplay between climate policy and market-based solutions. With a specific focus on issues that are currently underexplored in the debate, broad topics for our proposed climate work in the project period may include carbon pricing, climate risk management and technological solutions to climate change.


The target audience for our work is local and national policymakers, regulators, scholars, business executives, journalists, students and the public, and we will particularly draw on the expertise and networks of our policy advisory board and academic advisory board members for our research, policy and outreach efforts.
