UCL IEDE Director states hopes for COP21

30 November 2015


France is hosting and presiding over the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change UNFCCC (COP21), otherwise known as “the 2015 Paris Climate Conference” from November 30th to December 11th 2015. 

COP21 will be a crucial conference, as it aims to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C.

Director of UCL IEDE, Prof Mike Davies, lays out his hopes for COP21:

"The INDC pledges are a start but only that.  My hopes for COP21 are that we can now move quickly to begin to implement the practical actions that will be required to achieve these and even more demanding targets."
