Abstract

A group of economists and scientists met at Stanford University on October 18, 2008 to discuss the role of research and development in developing effective policies for addressing the adverse potential consequences of climate change. We believe that climate change is a serious issue that governments need to address. We also believe that it is vitally important that research and development be made a central part of governments' strategies for responding to this challenge.
