One page paper proposal outline (single spaced)

“Identify two counties, cities, or firms and compare how they are responding to climate change.”

For the purpose of outline, please follow the following format:

– Identify two units you wish to study;

– Briefly explain how are they similar or different (the rationale for comparing them)?

– Specify the policies (mitigation and/or adaptation) you will be comparing;

– Why are you focusing on these policies; what do you think they might reveal about these units’ climate policies;

– Do you expect the responses of these units will be similar or different? Why?;

– The “therefore what?” question: how do you think this study might move forward your understanding of climate policy.

Please write in regular prose and not in bullet points.
