ECIPE Seminar: Outcome of Paris COP 21 and its Implications for Asia

February 09 2016
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6 Bruxelles 1040
Speakers: Professor Suh-Yong Chung
Time: 12:30

Will Asia now take the mantle of climate change leadership?

What is Asia’s contribution to the new Paris Agreement on climate change – and what will the consequences of the Agreement for Asian countries? The rise in the world’s emission of carbon will be dependent on Asia and its growing economic activity. While the Paris Agreement ended in a compromise, there had been strong efforts by some countries and leaders to conclude an agreement that would have placed a greater burden on Asian countries. Many Asian countries, however, took a different view of how an agreement should be structured and what mechanisms that should be used to generate actual results. Now that the agreement has been done – what will be Asia’s role for the new Agreement to work and deliver the expected outcome?
