What happened at COP22 and what does it mean for global cooperation on climate change?
At COP21 last December, the Paris Agreement was unanimously adopted and charted a new course in the global response to climate change. In Marrakesh this November, world governments came together for the first time since Paris to discuss the implementation of the Paris Agreement at COP22. Ministers and civil society met against the backdrop of fresh evidence that 2016 will be the warmest year on record and with the election of a new administration in Washington that could reverse American support for the Paris Agreement.
So what happened at COP22? What was (and wasn't) agreed to, and what does this mean for progress on climate change?
Join us for a free public dialogue and debrief on COP22, featuring two individuals who were deeply involved. Jennifer Allan is a Team Leader/Writer for the IISD Reporting Services' Earth Negotiations Bulletin, the premier environmental reporting service that records what actually happened throughout official negotiations. Tzeporah Berman, an internationally-recognized environmental writer and activist and Adjunct Professor at York University, facilitated and contributed to many civil society meetings at COP22.
Can't make it in person? Carbon Talks will be webcast live, thanks to the support of the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions. Webcast link: http://www.youtube.com/user/carbontalks/live (Follow the conversation on Twitter at @CarbonTalks)
