Event Description

Full Description:
The UQ School of Economics is pleased to present the 22nd Colin Clark Memorial Lecture, with guest speaker Professor Ross Garnaut.

Presentation Outline:
The world failed in its first approach to international cooperation on climate change mitigation: comprehensive agreement on allocation of national responsibilities to achieve an agreed objective. In 2010, a different approach was adopted by default: bottom-up unilateral action disciplined by peer review. This lecture examines the economics and the international relations of the new approach. Along the way, it assesses the economics of Australian policy in the light of international action.

About Professor Ross Garnaut:
Professor Ross Garnaut (AO) is a Vice-Chancellorís Fellow and a Professorial Fellow in Economics at the University of Melbourne as well as a Distinguished Professor of the Australian National University. In 2009, Professor Garnaut was awarded the degree of Doctor of Letters, honoris causa, from the Australian National University and was made a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Society of Australia.
