About CSP Consulting

Cambridge Science and Policy Consulting is the private consultancy of Prof Douglas Crawford-Brown, located in San Diego (US) and Cambridge (UK). The consultancy has operated since 2001 with a focus on environmental risk assessment, policy analysis and climate risk reduction.

My projects are global, but with much of the work in support of environmental risk assessment, policy development and community-scale decarbonisation in the US, UK and EU. I also have completed projects in Japan, UAE, Austria, Mexico, Thailand, Taiwan, France, India, Czech Republic, China, Finland and Norway.

My degrees are in nuclear science and physics, but most of my career has been in the field of environmental science and policy. I retired in 2017 as Director of the University of Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research and as a founding member of the Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment. I remain a Senior Member of Robinson College at Cambridge and Emeritus Professor in the Department of Land Economy at the University. I also am Emeritus Professor in Environmental Sciences and Policy at the University of North Carolina in the US, where I was Professor from 1982 to 2007 in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Department of Public Policy and Program in Ecology, Resource Faculty in the Department of Philosophy, and founding Director of the university-wide Institute for the Environment. 

Since 2015 I have been International Visiting Professor of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Visiting Professor of Doshisha University (Japan), Lecturer at Beihang University (China) and Lecturer at the University of Graz (Austria). I have served on multiple committees of the Science Advisory Board of the US Environmental Protection Agency (US); National Science Foundation (US); Legislative Commission on Global Climate Change (US); Technical Advisory Group of the American Water Works Association (US); OFWAT Regulatory Futures Panel (UK); HM Treasury Interdependent Infrastructure Expert Panel (UK); Climate Change Risk Assessment panel (UK); Pool of Scientific Experts (EU); RBS Innovation Gateway panel; and as Chair of the Board for Wysing Arts Centre (UK).
