Can the UN be the broker of an international Climate Change Agreement and how will it affect the economy? World leaders are to meet in Paris this year (30th November - 11th December) seeking to reach consensus on an international climate change deal. This Debate will preview the key issues and likely outcomes.
The purpose of the Debates is to provide objective and factual clarification of selected current environmental issues. To this end, a panel of three experts addresses the applicable science, law and policy. Each speaker has 15 minutes to present and then the floor is open for a question-and-answer session from which a summary of the Debate is produced.
