Geoengineering Policy Fellowships Offered by Belfer Center's Energy Technology Innovation Policy Research Group at Harvard Kennedy School
The Belfer Center's Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group will be offering research fellowships in geoengineering policy for 2012–2013. These fellowships are for postdoctoral scholars and Masters-level scholars with extensive experience. The purpose of these fellowships is to improve understanding of the options for governance of geoengineering—deliberate large-scale manipulation of the Earth's climate to partially offset the climate risks caused by greenhouse-gas emissions.
Applications for these fellowships for the 2012–2012 academic year will be accepted until April 12, 2012.

The current negotiations in Bonn, Germany, mark a major step on the road to the next international climate agreement. With the negotiating text now being discussed, the Harvard Project has a wide array of research papers and policy ideas, each condensed into a two-page summary, which may be useful to those working on these issues. We have chosen to highlight some of those most relevant to the Bonn negotiating agenda.

We are pleased to announce that Larry Karp (University of California, Berkeley) and Jinhua Zhao (Michigan State University) have been chosen as the winners of the open research paper competition of the Harvard Project on International Climate Agreements. Their paper, "A Proposal for the Design of the Successor to the Kyoto Protocol", was selected based on its innovative and realistic approach to post-2012 global climate policy.

The Harvard Project on International Climate Agreements invites submission of papers focused on the design of international climate policy architectures. Papers should propose a complete policy framework to succeed the Kyoto Protocol in the post-2012 period.
