Experts gathered in Washington, D.C. for a policy forum hosted by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment to discuss California's state-level policies designed to combat climate change and encourage a sustainable energy future.
In a new paper, researchers at Stanford take a deep dive into the methods and approaches to assessment of major environmental issues. This effort is part of the Stanford Environment Assessment Facility (SEAF), directed by Katharine Mach, which tackles issues such as conflict in a changing climate, pathways for deep decarbonization, and the resilience of our investments in climate change response.
