Bipartisan, Multi-Sector Stakeholders Develop Recommendations for Decarbonization
The climate crisis presents significant risk for our livelihood and the economy as a whole. We need only look to the February 2021 winter storm in Texas, 2020 California wildfires, or the 2019 Mississippi floods to demonstrate the acuteness of climate risks for both American families and our power, transportation, and agriculture systems. The Decarbonization Dialogue is a project led by Keystone Policy Center and Great Plains Institute that convened experts from different sectors to develop recommendations for near-term federal policies to drive economy-wide and equitable decarbonization.
The Decarbonization Dialogue was designed to provide a bipartisan, collaborative set of recommendations that could quickly inform debate around climate and decarbonization action regardless of which party is in the majority and who was in the White House. Dialogue participants were organized into three working groups focused on power, transportation, and agriculture. The recommendations were developed by stakeholders with diverse interests and reflect months of dialogue between and among sector-specific working groups. They were publicly launched in February 2021.
