About the lecture:
After more than 20 years negotiations, the international community is frustrated by the fact that a long-term legally binding agreement is still far from reaching. Why is the progress so slow? How can we understand the trend? How can academia work together with governments, international organizations and private sectors to achieve a climate friendly future for all? This presentation will provide a framework with some cases inviting all practitioners and researchers in academia for further collaboration .
