Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change Reports

 

The Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change is an interdisciplinary organization that conducts research, independent policy analysis, and public communication on issues of global environmental change. Established in 1991 as a shared activity of the Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) and the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research (CEEPR), it brings together scientific, economic, and policy aspects of global change issues, with a particular focus on climate. Visit the Joint Program's website for more information.
