The Roosevelt Project

Publications and Other Materials

The Roosevelt Project takes a multidisciplinary approach to assessing the unique challenges posed by the transition to deep decarbonization and the opportunities for intervention from both public and private stakeholders to accelerate and facilitate the transition. To that end, we commissioned nine individual white papers on crosscutting topics related to this transition:
