The Climate Policy Lab is an initiative at the Fletcher School, Tufts University to better understand which energy and climate policies work, which don't and why.


The Lab is a source of independent and objective advice for governments contemplating new climate policies as they implement new domestic policies consistent with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

CPL serves as a virtual lab for international comparative policy analysis, conducting rigorous evidence-based research to provide rapid and concrete answers to questions posed by policymakers.

Through its international and comparative approach, the Lab addresses the issue of policy interaction and evaluates more precisely the cumulative effect of existing and actually-implemented climate policies.
