Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance

Department A-Z


Welcome to the website of the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG, read ‘synergy’). C-EENRG’s core mission is to conduct integrative research on the governance of environmental transitions, understood as social and technological processes driven by environmental constraints that lead to fundamental changes in social organisation. Our work draws upon the knowledge of the drivers and implications of environmental change generated in various centres across the University of Cambridge and focuses on the law and governance dimensions of environmental transitions. Law is viewed as a technology to bring, guide and/or manage environment-driven societal transformation.

C-EENRG Featured Conversation

The future is becoming harder to predict thanks to climate change and a global pandemic. But a large part of what the future will look like is in our own hands. In this episode of the Mind Over Chatter podcast, three University of Cambridge experts, Diane Coyle, professor of public policy, Laura Diaz Anadon, professor of climate change policy, and architectural engineer, Ruchi Choudhary, join the hosts to talk about how we can build a future that might not be anything like the past. The podcast covers topics like innovation, GDP, and how the uncertainty created by climate change can help propel policy and economic decisions.
