"The Paris Agreement on Climate Change: Behind Closed Doors."  The UN Climate Conference in Paris, 2015. The new Paris Agreement will define the global response to climate change for years to come. What really happened in Paris? This presentation will provide an insider perspective on the negotiations. It will clarify the contentious issues, the positions of major countries including Canada, and the political dynamics behind (very) closed doors. Key elements of the new agreement and its ramifications for climate governance will be discussed.
