Event – Brookings Scholar Lecture Series

brookingslegacy-nevadaBrooking’s Scholar Lecture Series: “Growth Without (Emissions) Growth: State Progress and Drift on Decoupling”

November 15, 2016,
6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
UNLV Greenspun Hall Auditorium (1st Floor)

Brooking’s Mountain West presents: Growth Without (Emissions) Growth: State Progress and Drift on Decoupling,” a talk by Devashree Saha, Ph.D., senior policy associate & associate fellow, Metropolitan Policy, Brooking’s Institution.

Decoupling of GDP growth from growth in carbon emissions is taking on an increasing salience since it represents the squaring of the circle necessary to decarbonize the global economy while maintaining economic growth. Now the evidence says that since 2000 the United States has fully decoupled economic growth from carbon emissions: GDP went up by 30 percent over the past 15 years while carbon emissions decreased by 10 percent. This public lecture and presentation will discuss how the transformation of economic growth towards a lower dependency on fossil fuels and related carbon emissions is happening across U.S. states including in Nevada.

This event is free and open to the public.

Devashree Saha is a senior policy associate and associate fellow at the Brooking’s Institution Metropolitan Policy Program. Her research primarily focuses on the intersection of clean energy and economic development policy, including the transition to a clean energy economy. Prior to joining Brooking’s, Saha worked at the National Governors Association, where her work spanned clean energy, transportation, and land use planning issues. She holds a Ph.D. in public policy from the University of Texas at Austin and a master’s in political science from Purdue University.
