US Climate Policy Outlook for 2021: What to Expect in the First Year

January 15 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The Joe Biden-Kamala Harris Administration is poised to enter office on the back of an ambitious climate agenda, departing from four years in which the White House was largely indifferent or even antagonistic to climate priorities. On the surface, the Biden-Harris climate agenda sends powerful signals to the international community, to business and to sub-national governments. Beneath the surface, the agenda will face a number of challenges to implementation. So what can we expect to see in the Biden-Harris Administration’s first year?

In this first installment of the Canada-US Climate Policy Series, three US policy insiders share their insights on what elements of the Biden-Harris climate agenda will get prioritized in 2021. What sectors and industries will be targeted? What policy tools will be used? What hurdles will need to be overcome? And what does it all mean for the longer-term trajectory of climate policy under this Administration?
