2015 : Mitigating climate change: how scenarios, modelling and strategies can contribute

CITEPA's annual Technical Conference was to be on 2 April in Paris (Paris-Dauphine University, Paris 16e):

Keynote speakers include experts from the Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace, the Climate Economics Chair (University-Paris-Dauphine), the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (IDDRI), the National Technical University of Athens, the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the EDDEN Laboratory of Grenoble, the NGO 4D, the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA), and French, Belgian and Tunisian Environment Ministries
Beyond the challenge for the planet, mitigating climate change offers major scientific, technical and economic prospects. With the COP-21 just a few months away, what positive insights do national and subnational mitigation plans provide? Leading players and international experts in France, Germany and Belgium and Africa will present the types of modelling and scenarios used in national mitigation strategies.

Drawing on several case studies at national level and projects such as Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) or Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDs), mitigating climate change provides extensive opportunities to both public- and private-sector policymakers and other key stakeholders.
