The 2012 Douglas Copland Lecture
Transitioning to a Low Emissions Future: Implications for Global
In honour of its founder, Sir Douglas Copland, the biennial
lecture series commemorates CEDA's achievements as a body dedicated
to informing, influencing and raising the standard of discussion on
public policy. The lecture provides a platform for international
experts to share and debate their ideas with an audience of
business leaders, policy makers and leading academics.
CEDA is delighted to announce Professor Ottmar Edenhofer will
deliver the 2012 Douglas Copland Lecture.
In his inaugural speaking engagement in Australia, Professor
Edenhofer, a German economist whose field of expertise includes
climate change policy, energy economics and policy, will assess
what the impacts will be on global energy supply chain as we
continue to transition towards a low emissions future.
The 2012 Douglas Copland Lecture will provide you with an
opportunity to hear first hand how other nations are framing
climate and energy policies, and to determine how this might
influence Australia's own long term response.
