Climate Risk Governance and Washington

Environmental policy's history has deep roots in Washington. Our Evergreen State also has been a leader in climate risk governance but why and to what end?  Dr. Troy D. Abel shares his insight on our state's struggle to develop effective climate policies and how funding by the National Science Foundation can influence research and policy.


Dr. Troy Abel is the Academic Program Director of the Huxley on the Peninsulas Program and an Associate Professor of Environmental Policy in the Department of Environmental Studies. His scholarship informs a teaching program committed to fostering an interactive classroom and student research collaborations.  He is currently involved in several large grant projects focused on environmental governance including one from the National Institute of Health. He is an award-winning author of several books including FIVE SEASONS IN ECTOPIA: Rainforest Immersion and Conservation Action in Costa Rica.
