Global Cooperation on Climate Change: From the 1992 Framework Convention to the 2015 Paris Agreement and Beyond
(90-minute webinar)

Climate change represents a particularly challenging policy problem because greenhouse gas emissions blanket the Earth without regard to their origin, thus requiring global collaboration for a successful response. This presentation will trace the ups and downs of international efforts to respond to the challenge from the 1992 Framework Convention on Climate Change to the present moment. We will explore the reasons for the relative lack of progress through most of this period and why the 2015 Paris Agreement might represent a watershed moment that provides the foundation for successful emissions control and adaptation going forward.
