Climate Change

Task Force Chairs

  • Ambuj Sagar
    Professor of Policy Studies
    Indian Institute of Technology
  • Joseph Stiglitz
    Co-President
    Initiative for Policy Dialogue (IPD)

IPD’s Climate Change Task Force is dedicated to advancing the discourse on what would constitute the least unfair bargaining equilibrium on a climate change agreement, especially from the perspective of developing countries. In the past, self-interest and vested interest politics have often dominated the discussions of climate change, with little opportunity for a reasoned discourse based on or derived from commonly acceptable ethical principles and notions of economic efficiency. This Task Force brings experts from both developed and developing countries to the table to push the dialogue on a climate change agreement forward.
