Avon - The 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement: From Breakdown to Breakthrough
Posted on: 2018-10-11
What: The 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement: From Breakdown to Breakthrough, with featured speaker Dan Esty
Where: Avon Library, 281 Country Club Rd., Avon, CT 06001
When: October 27, 2018, 2:00-4:00 pm
While environmentalists fret over the looming prospect of global warming, rising sea levels, more intense hurricanes and typhoons, changed rainfall patterns, intensifying flood and drought risks - and the failure of the global community to respond to these threats with greater vigor, Professor Esty argues that the "outcome" of the recent Paris Climate Change ("CoP21") Conference (which goes beyond the formal "Paris Agreement") offers the foundation for a ramped-up global response to climate change. He sees a shift from a top-down approach focused on nation states toward more of a bottom-up strategy that draws cities, states/provinces, and companies into the global effort as promising. He also welcomes the move away from "targets and timetables" as the central element of global policymaking to a "solutions" focus that emphasizes incentives for action. As the one of the US Environmental Protection Agency's negotiators of the 1992 Framework Convention on Climate Change, Professor Esty will offer a 25-year perspective on the evolving legal and policy frameworks that have shaped the world community's response to climate change - and reflect on prospects that the CoP21 Agreement represents an inflection point. Dan Esty is the Hillhouse Professor at Yale University with primary appointments in Yale's Environment and Law Schools and a secondary appointment at the Yale School of Management. He serves as Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy (www.yale.edu/envirocenter) and on the Advisory Board of the Yale Center for Business and Environment(www.yale.edu/CBEY), which he founded in 2006. Professor Esty is the author or editor of ten books and dozens of articles on environmental protection, energy, and sustainability -- and their connections to policy, corporate strategy, competitiveness, trade, performance measurement, and economic success.
