It was our dream come true: our CGD initiative – Tropical Forests for Climate and Development – getting mentioned on the front page of the New York Times, albeit the angle wasn’t quite what we had in mind. We prefer to focus on the substance. After all, CGD has been working on Financing Forest Conservation to Combat Global Warming since before the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, and we’re excited about our research that’s currently underway.
With rigorous economic research and practical policy solutions, we focus on the issues and institutions that are critical to global development. Explore our core themes and topics to learn more about our work.
