2019 : Interactions and benefits of climate, air quality and energy action

The next CITEPA's annual Technical Conference is to be on 12 June in Paris from 9 am to 5:30 pm.


Several qualified experts from France, Europe, China and India, will come and present their experience and recommendations to integrate action in the three key areas of climate, air quality and energy. The conference will focus on the organisational, technical, scientific and policy aspects, and include public- and private-sector contributions from all administrative levels.

The conference will provide participants with the opportunity to examine the links between the various policies and their capacity to strengthen synergies in order to reduce adverse impacts more rapidly. The conference will also give participants the chance to meet climate, air quality and energy strategy experts and decision-makers.

The conference conclusions will be drawn by the Director of the General Directorate for Energy and Climate (within the French Environment Ministry, MTES)

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

CITEPA's annual Technical Conference was 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.
