David Kanter, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs


David’s research focuses on how and to what effect the Montreal Protocol could control nitrous oxide (N2O), one of the most abundant ozone depleting substances and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. By investigating both the effect of nitrogen fertilizer application on global N2O emissions, as well as possible policy approaches for the Montreal Protocol, he is hoping to track this issue from its source to its solution. With faith in the effectiveness of a single international climate agreement quickly waning, David is convinced the Montreal Protocol has an important role to play in mitigating the effects of global climate change.
