London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), UK
The Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment (GRI) is the home to climate-change and environment research at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The Institute is chaired by Lord Stern of Brentford, author of the 2006 Stern Review, and brings together international expertise on economics, finance, geography, the environment, international development and political economy to establish a world-leading centre for policy-relevant research and training in climate change and the environment. The Institute has been funded by philanthropists Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham, through their Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment. It works closely with the Grantham Institute at Imperial College London. Within the Institutes sits the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy, which is funded by the UK's Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and by Munich Re.
