2 years left to reach an ambitious climate deal: Which role for Europe?

The Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament is organising its annual conference on the UN climate negotiations to discuss the latest scientific findings on climate change and the risks for Europe.

DATE: Wednesday 13 November 2013, 15:00 -18:30
VENUE: European Parliament - A1G3 - 60 rue Wiertz - Brussels 

From 11 to 22 November 2013, the United Nations Climate Change Conference will be held in Warsaw, Poland. During the previous international climate negotiations, the most pressing issues - especially the necessity for all countries countries to urgently reduce their greenhouse gas emissions to have a chance to limit global warming to  less than  2°C -  have been left completely aside.  World policy makers have agreed to seal a climate deal in 2015. Time is therefore short and serious decisions must be taken at this upcoming summit to ensure that the future deal will be ambitious enough to avoid the most dramatic climate threats. Poland, which will host the COP, has a huge responsability and must play a very constructive role. 

This conference, organised by The Greens/EFA group in the European Parliament, will offer some space for a discussion on what role the EU should play at the negotiations and what its ambitions for the next three COPs are, but it will be also an opportunity to share a broader perspective with a range of experts from China and the US.

More information about the programme and the registration can be find on the event webpage.

Please note that an online registration is required.
