Think tank

The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) is dedicated to finding paths forward to reduce the risks of climate change and improve sustainability while allowing for a vibrant global economy. This includes strategies for mitigation and adaptation, with a mix of public policies, market instruments and affecting the decisions taken by individual actors and organisations. 4CMR is part of the Department of Land Economy of the University of Cambridge. Its broadly interdisciplinary work meets its mission through scholarly study of the interactions between energy, environmental and economic systems (E3) helping decision-makers meet the challenge of reducing the risks from climate change and related threats to sustainability. In addition to this macroeconomic modelling, 4CMR's research includes understanding the decision processes of key organisations and sectors as these influence uptake of low carbon strategies; assessment of adaptation strategies to reduce the vulnerability of economies to climate impacts; assessing the health co-benefits of climate policies; developing coordinated suites of policies to deliver on complex E3 strategies; and defining the political, legal and institutional barriers to climate policy instruments.
