Climate change two years on from COP21: where we are now and where we should go from here

Two years ago at COP21 in Paris, a global transition towards a carbon-free future was rubber stamped by all of the key movers and shakers around the globe, with China and the United States on the same page.

Fast forward two years and the general sense of where we are, is less certain. While there is still a lot to be positive about – renewable energy continues to scale in many markets – we also see a vastly different landscape, with an ever-evolving set of geo-political challenges.

With these uncertainties as a backdrop to climate change in 2017, Elsevier is delighted to invite you to a free webinar aimed at helping participants understand where we are now and where we should go from here. A panel of 3 eminent speakers will include Alice Larkin from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change.

Topics will include:

  • Whether we are on track with the COP targets and challenges that need to be overcome to meet minimal global temperature rise ambitions;
  • How to facilitate a transition to low-emission technology in developed countries and power-hungry developing nations;
  • How to mitigate against the dangers / damage posed by climate change;
  • What levers (such as energy efficiency, clean technology, renewables etc.) do we have at our disposal and what role can science & technology play?

There will also be a 15 minute Q&A session to address audience questions.

Who should attend?

Those active in industry, academia, or policy, and those with a general interest in climate change and its related scientific disciplines.
