Towards a competitive low carbon economy - Paris 2015
On 9 November 2015, the IIIEE and IVA are organising a seminar in Stockholm with the theme Towards a competitive low carbon economy - Paris 2015, with the purpose to focus on pathways towards a low carbon economy, in connection to the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference, COP21, in Paris 2015, starting on 30 November. During the seminar in Stockholm, the IIIEE will present the project Policy intervention for a competitive green energy economy. The goal of the project is to understand, explain and improve the policy making process towards a low carbon economy.
Background to the COP21 in Paris:
In 2015, France will be hosting and presiding the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11), otherwise known as “Paris 2015” from November 30th to December 11th. COP21 will be a crucial conference, as it needs to achieve a new international agreement on the climate, applicable to all countries, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. France will therefore be playing a leading international role to ensure points of view converge and to facilitate the search for consensus by the United Nations, as well as within the European Union, which has a major role in climate negotiations.
