Accelerating resiliency planning in communities across the Commonwealth

Georgetown Climate Center

logo-georgetown_climate_centerThe nonpartisan Georgetown Climate Center seeks to advance effective climate, energy, and transportation policies in the United States—policies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help communities adapt to climate change.

Led by Executive Director Vicki Arroyo and Faculty Director Professor Peter Byrne of Georgetown Law, the Center also seeks to ensure that national climate and energy policy is informed by lessons from existing state efforts and that national policies maintain an ongoing role for state innovation and implementation.

The Center performs a vital role in the development of policy by:

  • Connecting states and federal policymakers;
  • Analyzing legislative and regulatory developments and assisting with program design;
  • Sharing best practices and success stories with state and federal policymakers;
  • Serving as a resource to all states in addressing climate change and promoting a clean energy economy.

Based at Georgetown Law, the Center works extensively with government officials, academics, and an array of stakeholders to strengthen state and federal climate partnerships. The Center analyzes the provisions of federal policy relevant to states and territories, and encourages policymakers to learn from and adopt innovative policies emerging from the states.

Visit the Georgetown Climate Center website for tools, reports, and more.
