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.

    We structurally estimate a two-sector Schumpeterian growth model with endogenous population and finite land reserves to study the long run evolution of global population, technological progress and the demand for food. The ...

    We develop and test a physically based semi-Lagrangian water body temperature model to apply climatological data and thermal pollution from river-based power plants to historical river flow data in order to better understand ...
