Think tank

Brown University’s Climate and Development Lab (CDL) is a think tank based at the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society and was founded in 2010 by Professor Timmons Roberts, Ph.D. Candidate David Ciplet, and Research Fellow Guy Edwards as an experiment in engaged learning. The CDL produces timely, accessible and impactful research that informs a more just and effective climate change policy. They work with leading actors in government, civil society and the media around the world in the attempt to bring about change by identifying and filling important research gaps and generating ideas for action on climate change. They focus on issues of equity, justice and climate finance, with a regional focus on the Least Developed Countries, Latin America, and the United States. They contribute to the climate debate by providing commentary and analysis through the production of academic papers, policy briefs, op-eds and blogs, and organizing events in the U.S. and at the UN climate negotiations.
