Why are the upcoming UN Climate Negotiations important?

The twenty-first session of the conference of the parties (COP21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will be held in Paris in December 2015. COP21 is considered to be a pivotal moment in international climate negotiations, with the objective to achieve, for the first time in over 20 years, a binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world.

Are you interested in climate change and international issues? Have you wondered where Canadian climate policy stands in relation to the rest of the world?  Join us for a panel discussion reviewing the COP20 United Nations climate negotiations, and looking ahead to the critical negotiations that will take place in Paris in late 2015.
