The 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC to be held in Paris in the coming weeks represent a hinge moment in climate politics. Negotiation of an ambitious, universal and legally constraining agreement will potentially become a critical juncture in the history of the international regime for climate change.
From November 30 to December 11, eight graduate students from the Université de Montréal and Université Sherbrooke will participate in the Université de Sherbrooke delegation to COP 21, and will share essential developments occurring in Paris on this blog. In collaboration with the Unité du développement durable de l’Université de Montréal, key developments at the negotiations will be set in context and analysed on this blog. Posts will cover issues ranging from details on negotiations, the articulation of different government positions, as well as climate finance dedicated to help developing countries reduce their emissions and adapt to a changing climate.
