Strategies
Overview
The Climate Policy Lab (CPL) will examine mitigation policies (mostly in the developing world) through the lenses of what works, what doesn’t and why. The goal is to support the design and implementation of low cost, scalable mitigation solutions that facilitate countries achieving their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. This will be particularly critical as the U.S. reduces support for such efforts; without U.S. aid, many nations will not have the resources or expertise to meet their commitments. The lab will serve as a resource center for developing nations on policy design and evaluation that is tailored to the local context.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Climate Policy Lab  
The Climate Policy Lab will examine mitigation policies (with a focus on China, India, and Mexico) through the lenses of what works, what doesn’t, and why. The goal is to support the design and implementation of low-cost, scalable mitigation solutions that facilitate countries achieving their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement. This will remain critical as the U.S. continues to withdraw from the international climate arena. The Lab’s goal is to increase both climate ambition and the effectiveness of their implementation of existing climate goals.
for integrating tech and policy in cybersecurity studies  
Tufts University is the parent institution to The Fletcher School, the oldest school in the U.S. dedicated solely to graduate studies in international affairs. The university is currently building a program in cybersecurity and policy that will involve Fletcher and the computer science department. The focus is to combine tech and policy training by introducing new courses, research, and outreach that lead to effective career planning and internship opportunities in this realm. This program grant will allow for three main efforts: (a) focused research on the organizations best suited for developing cryptographic standards, (b) development of courses that bridge policy and technical divides, (c) and a student symposium in cybersecurity.
