GPC PROJECT: Global Policy Coherence 2009


What is the GPC Project?

Harris Gleckman, GPC Project Manager

Harris Gleckman, GPC Project Manager explains: "The project on Global Policy Coherence aims for an improvement of the compatibility of existing trade and financial regimes with the new post-2012 climate change agreement. The project will involve an international expert group which will identify features of the current economic regimes that could obstruct the effectiveness of the future climate agreement and put forward alternative measures and policy recommendations for coherence between the climate, trade, financial and monetary regimes". » More information
