UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres to deliver GEG Annual Lecture on climate change
GEG is delighted to announce that the Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Christiana Figueres will deliver the GEG Annual Lecture 2015.
The lecture, entitled 'The Imperative of a Global Climate Deal', will be held on on Monday 26th October at the Examination Schools, Oxford, and comes on the eve of COP21, the global climate conference at which 196 countries will meet in Paris to discuss a possible new agreement on climate change. This will be Ms Figueres’ only public speaking engagement in the UK before the Paris summit, and so offers a unique opportunity to engage with a key figure at a decisive moment in the negotiations process.
Ms Figueres will emphasize the imperatives for decisive action and provide an overview of the current status of the negotiations, including current commitments on greenhouse gas emissions due for renewal in 2020.
