WEBINAR: Post COP 21 From Intent to Action
February 26, 2016 – 11 - 12:30 PM EST

Critical commitments emerged from the 21st Conference of Parties (COP 21) December 2015 meeting in Paris where developed and developing nations forged a landmark global greenhouse gas mitigation agreement. The accord sets a course for a historic transformation of the world’s fossil fuel-driven economy within decades, with the goal of keeping global temperature change below 2 degrees Celsius from preindustrial levels.

Now, the challenge is how to maintain the intent of the goals when the actions necessary are not binding. This session examines the policy, legal and social justice challenges in the transition from intent to action and how success can be gauged along the way.

Panelists:

Robert Perciasepe is President of the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions

Daniel M. Bodansky is a preeminent authority on global climate change and teaches courses in international law and sustainability at Arizona State University’s College of Law’s new Program on Law and Sustainability.

Dirk Forrister is President and CEO of the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA).

Sonya Klinsky is an Arizona State University Senior Scientist investigating how climate change policy has been developed and perceived in both domestic and international arenas.
