MAINTAINING MOMENTUM BEYOND PARIS

12th January 2016

The long-awaited climate change summit concluding in Paris this week represents a great opportunity to secure a strong and durable international agreement on climate change that adds structure and momentum to efforts already underway.

However, the conclusion of Paris signaled the beginning of a new chapter for international climate diplomacy rather than an end point.

Speakers set out their views on the outcome of the Paris summit, discussed the next steps for international climate diplomacy and explored what is now needed from domestic policy to continue growing the UK's low carbon economy.
