Climate change is on the policy agenda for most nations and it presents problems unlike those faced in dealing with other policy issues requiring attention. This intensive three-day Executive Training Seminar provided an introduction to the issues raised by climate change and the institutions that have evolved to deal with it. Separate three-hour sessions addressed the scientific underpinnings of climate change and the implications for policy, choosing appropriate policies in a multinational context, the current development of institutions to address climate change concerns, the intersection with trade law, how to allocate the burden equitably on a global scale, and what lessons to draw from the EU ETS.
