    Governing Climate Change: Challenges and Strategies

    The French Centre For Research on Contemporary China is co-organising with Sciences Po in China, the School of Public Policy and Management at Tsinghua University and the Weatherhead East Asian Institute at Columbia University the following International Seminar

    Peking, Tsinghua University

    Shool of Public Policy and Management

    Friday November 30, 2007, 9h00-17h00

      The current version of the climate regime as embodied in the 1997 Kyoto Protocol is largely inadequate to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. Full compliance with the requirements of the protocol would produce less than a 5% reduction in global emissions of GHGs relative to 1990 levels. The United States has not ratified the protocol and does not feel bound by any obligation to comply with its substantive provisions. The Peoples Republic of China is classified as a developing country under the terms of the protocol and therefore is exempt from any obligation to reduce GHG emissions. The regime created under the terms of the protocol will expire in 2012 at the end of the first commitment period. The focus is now on the terms of a post-Kyoto climate regime.

    This workshop will bring together a dozen of leading experts in science, politics and public policy of climate change, with two third international and one third Chinese. The one-day workshop will address the critical challenges in governing climate change globally and nationally.

     Speakers: Dr.Carine Barbier, Research Fellow, IDDRI ( Institut du Développement Durable et des Relations Internationales), Montpellier ; Antonin Beurrier, Sandvik Mining & Construction, Beijing ; Dr. Benjamin Guinot, Research Fellow CNRS, Laboratoire d'Aérologie, UMR 5560 Beijing ; Pr.
