The UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources is excited to announce a new, intensive 3-day program titled, “The Economic Impact of Climate and Energy Policy on the Public and Private Sectors.” Led by our faculty experts, the program will explore topics ranging from food, energy, and water to transportation and infrastructure.

The program will take place Oct. 3-5 and will be based on real-world data and case studies to give our participants a practical perspective on the economic effects of climate and energy policy like the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB32), the Resource Portfolio Standard, and the Energy Efficiency Standards. Consultants, attorneys, business executives, and municipal- and state-level executives will all benefit from this program.

The distinguished roster of instructors for the course includes Berkeley faculty across multiple disciplines, including Max Auffhammer, associate professor of agricultural and resource economics and a lead author on the most recent report from the Nobel Prize–winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; and Dan Kammen, energy and resources professor, another IPCC member who advised two presidential administrations and recently served as “energy czar” for The World Bank.
