The Paris Climate Summit: Prospects for a Global Agreement

Professor Michael Grubb, University College London; Professor Henry D. Jacoby, MIT Sloan School of Management; Professor Sheila Jasanoff, Harvard Kennedy School of Government; and Professor Valerie J. Karplus, MIT Sloan School of Management, will discuss “The Paris Climate Summit: Prospects for a Global Agreement.” Moderated by Michael Mehling, MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research.

In a few short weeks, the international community will converge in Paris for the 21st installment of the annual United Nations climate summit (COP21). Charged with elaborating an architecture for international climate cooperation beyond 2020, negotiators are expected to conclude an ambitious work stream that has spanned several years and faced countless diplomatic challenges. What can we realistically expect from the Paris climate summit, and what are the positions of some of the most influential actors going into the negotiations? Please join leading authorities on international climate policy for a timely discussion of the prospects for COP21.
