ECIPE Afternoon Discussion: What can be achieved at the Paris UN climate change meeting? An Asian perspective

February 10 2015
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: Suh-Yong Chung
Time: 15:30

Asian and European approaches to climate change differ. Can a new global climate change accord accommodate both?

By the end of this year, Paris will host a summit to broker a new climate change accord. Negotiations to get a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol have not been successful, but there are new efforts to make the changes of success greater at the Paris summit. As Asia now represents a big – and still growing – part of the world economy and carbon emissions, it is critical that a new agreement reflects the successful approaches to reduce carbon emissions in Asia. At this seminar, professor Suh-Yong Chung will talk about Asian approaches to climate change and how they fit with ambitions for a global agreement to reduce carbon emissions.
