The Governance of Clean Development (GCD) project analyses which of the actors, institutions and policy-making processes involved in clean development are resulting in effective climate action and development benefits, which are not, and why.
This innovative research programme has generated insights into the governance aspects of clean development, principally in the area of energy. By employing a combination of research, dissemination and training activities the project seeks to push forward current research and practice on the politics of clean development.
In early 2012 the GCD project concluded its primary research. Check our publications page for the latest.
The GCD project was funded through the ESRC Climate Change Leadership Fellowship scheme. The project was led by Professor Peter Newell working with Jon Phillips, and Lucy Baker. All three continue to explore similar themes of clean development, energy politics, equity and justice through their current work.
