How Well Are Our Environmental Laws Working? Retrospective Analysis of Federal Environmental Regulation
There has long been bipartisan interest in understanding how well US laws and regulations are working to achieve their intended purposes. A credible look back at past performance—referred to as retrospective or ex post analysis—can help document the extent to which regulatory benefits have been realized, and at what cost. Such analyses can also illuminate any unintended consequences of regulation, e.g., adverse outcomes for certain populations, or enhancement of market power. These retrospective studies are also critical in supporting future innovation in regulatory design.
Prospective (or ex ante) analyses—more commonly known as regulatory impact analyses, or RIAs—are now routinely conducted …Find out more »

Countries around the world face the same challenge: provide enough energy to fuel economic growth with optimal social and environmental outcomes. This means energy must be affordable, secure, and clean. But each country is in a different stage of development.
For nearly half a decade, the global community has organized around two goals for the energy sector: (1) eradicate energy poverty and (2) combat the effects of global climate change. Each has become more urgent and complex. The eradication of energy poverty is not simply about energy access; it is providing modern energy services to the world’s growing and developing …Find out more »
