Making the Global Local: Climate Policy in U.S. Cities

Dr. Rachel Krause, Assistant Professor, KU School of Public Affairs & Administration
This talk examines the unlikely leadership role that cities have acquired in the development and implementation of climate policy. It proposes a three-fold relationship between cities and climate change, presenting cities as key contributors to the problem, as potential victims expected to suffer disproportionately from it, and as could-be climate heroes. It focuses on climate committed cities and describes their primary motivations for involvement, reviews what they are doing to reduce GHG emissions, and presents a rough estimate of the larger impact that local efforts can make.
