What to expect from COP21?

As the COP21 conference approaches, what are the political and economic considerations?

Date: November 26, 2015, 12:00 pm Energy & Climate Tags & Topics

The Paris climate summit (COP21) is fast approaching and important elements of a possible agreement are emerging. What is already certain is that any agreement will be as much political and economic as it is environmental. So what are the considerations that most impact decarbonisation policies? Does a consistent picture emerge?

Thomas Spencer gave a presentation on the contributions (INDCs) submitted by the parties ahead of COP21. In a subsequent panel debate Simone Mori gave the perspective of industry and Jos Delbeke a point of view from the Commission.

Video And audio recording A number of campaigns fought in 2016 would appear to have been won or lost on evidence and analysis that did not stand up to scrutiny.

Climate policy in China, the European Union and the United States: Main drivers and prospects for the future

China, the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) are responsible for the majority of global emissions of greenhouse gases, and produce about half of global GDP. Hence, their climate policies not only determine the success of global efforts to curb future emissions of greenhouse gases, but also affect policy developments in other countries. The aim of this report is to assist policy-makers, climate change negotiators and analysts to understand the domestic constraints and opportunities facing each jurisdiction, and to identify areas of common interest or concern between the three jurisdictions.
