Check out this upcoming seminar organized by the Stockholm Environment Institute at Tufts University “Low Emissions Development in an Era of Cheap and Abundant Fossil Fuels”
The seminar will explore the emerging field of Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS), describe how the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) has been working to support a variety of international LEDS initiatives, and explore some of the significant future challenges facing these efforts.
