The Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research (4CMR) is one of the research centres of the Department of Land Economy. We identify and assess policies that reduce the risks of climate change while allowing for global economic development through the study of both mitigation (reducing climate change) and adaptation (reducing the risks when climate change does occur). At the heart of our research are integrated economy-energy-climate-land-health models that allow for the complexity of social and physical processes to emerge. Our work shows that only through inclusion of such complexity can societies correctly identify policies that simultaneously achieve economic, energy, environmental and public health aims. We also work with public and private sector organisations to apply our research in facilitating design and adoption of effective policies and practices.
