Navigating the American Carbon World (NACW) is the largest and most comprehensive gathering for information and discussion around climate change policy and carbon markets. Happening April 16-18 in San Francisco, NACW will take an in-depth look at California’s historic cap-and-trade program, including discussions on market structure, revenue allocation, legal issues and forecasts. The conference will also delve into other established and emerging carbon markets around the world and potential linkages. And, NACW will provide a platform for discussing offsets and offset supply, U.S. federal policies, and business leadership.

The conference, now in its 11th year, is organized by the Climate Action Reserve. The 2013 program is presented in partnership with the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions. 

Several Nicholas Institute researchers are among those leading sessions during the conference. These include:

April 17, Provisioning: Carbon Markets and Cost Containment Mechanisms with Brian Murray
