Less than a year is left until the UNFCCC conference in Paris (COP 21) where a global climate agreement is expected to be reached. Less than five years are left until 2020 – a year where global emissions should peak and start falling thereafter. Achievement of those goals poses a great challenge.
Inspired by the successful outcome of the 2014 edition, Climate Strategies and The Stanley Foundation organised a two-day forum to explore new research ideas that can be employed to support climate negotiations and implementation of the global agreement towards COP21 and in the years to come.
The GCPC 2015 was part of a wider engagement process the “Global Research-Policy Interface Climate 2015″
GCPC 2015 Session Agenda
