In December 2015, nations from around the world came together to identify mechanisms to deliver a joint response to climate change. The agreement that came out of these meetings has been lauded by some as a meaningful step towards preventing the worst consequences of climate change, while others have condemned an approach that they perceive lacks teeth. The panel assembled to discuss this agreement range from those who were intimately involved with the practicalities of negotiations themselves, to those whose work to set out what sort of climate policy we should be aiming towards. Importantly for conference participants, the panelists will discuss not only what happened in Paris, but also the implications of this agreement for energy policy and markets.
