IRGC Expert workshop on Risk Governance of Unconventional Gas Development

Date: 5 and 6 November 2012

The objective of this project is to propose guiding principles that may have relevance and utility throughout the world. Although it is anticipated that regulatory systems will vary based on different political and legal cultures, IRGC plans to offer suggestions or guidance with regard to key technical and policy issues that should be addressed in the design of regulatory risk governance.

IRGC Team – project Unconventional Gas is led by John Graham, Dean, Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs. He is supported by John Rupp, Indiana Geological Survey, Indiana University Bloomington; Austin Mitchell, Center for Climate Change and Energy Decision Making, Carnegie Mellon University; Elizabeth Casman, Department of Engineering and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University and Mike Griffin, Green Design Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.
