The ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy is co-hosting, together with the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation and the Centre for the Study of Risk and Inequality at Queen’s University Belfast, the Place-based Climate Action Network (P-CAN).
P-CAN was launched on 31 January 2019, and is initially funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council for five years.
The P-CAN vision is to produce a replicable model that delivers climate policies on a global to local scale, facilitating and inspiring places across the UK.
P-CAN consists of five innovative platforms to facilitate two-way, multi-level engagement between researchers and stakeholders. These platforms are three city-based ‘climate commissions’ in Belfast, Edinburgh and Leeds, and two theme-based platforms on finance and business.
