This seminar will be given by Robert Stowe, Executive
Director, Harvard Environmental Economics Program
Manager, Harvard Project on Climate Agreements. Climate-change negotiators agreed in Durban, South Africa, in December 2011 to draft a new international agreement by 2015, which would take effect by 2020. The new agreement would be fundamentally different from the Kyoto Protocol, in that developing countries (at least the largest emitters among them) would take on commitments of the same type as industrialized countries. Just because negotiators agreed to draft a new agreement, however, does not mean it is going to happen. How did we get to Durban? Is the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action really a step forward? If so, how can we best build upon it? Lunch will be served.
