Lecture by Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the OECD

Introduced and chaired by Lord Stern of Brentford

The Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, and the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy, in collaboration with the Climate Markets & Investment Association (CMIA), invite you to a lecture by Angel Gurría, Secretary-General of the OECD.

In this lecture, Mr Gurría will present the OECD’s latest analysis of climate change, investment and energy policies, and discuss the resulting developments in the energy landscape as we transition from a world threatened by fossil fuel scarcity to one of potential abundance. He will also address the need for consistent carbon price signals as the key element in the design of better policies to: reduce fossil fuel dependence; encourage renewables and energy efficiency; foster the deployment of carbon capture and storage technologies; and influence the flow of future investments in the energy sector.

Norton Rose Fulbright and Climate Change Capital are pleased to host this event on behalf of the Grantham Research Institute, the LSE and the Climate Markets & Investment Association. If you wish to attend, please RSVP to gri@lse.ac.uk or tel +44 (0)20 7107 5440.
