On March 29, 2012, CLEAR co-hosted a conference with the Center for Progressive Reform (CPR) on the Impact of Law on Private Sector Adaptation. The conference was held in conjunction with other CPR activities focused on climate change adaptation.

The conference gathered an interdisciplinary group of academics, non-profit and business representatives, and government officials to discuss how the government could facilitate adaptation efforts in the private sector. The gathering was intended as the beginning of a longer and long-term discussion about how the government can encourage, facilitate, and even demand adaptive actions from the different parts of the private sector and how the government can shape the private sector response in a positive manner.

The outcome of the conference was a briefing paper (PDF) outlining ideas presented.
