Harvard Project on Climate Agreements' Participation in COP-22

| Jan. 31, 2017

The Harvard Project on Climate Agreements conducted two side-event panels at the Twenty-Second Conference of the Parties (COP-22) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), held in Marrakech, Morocco November 7–18, 2016. COP-22 focused on elaborating the Paris Agreement, which was adopted at COP-21 in December 2015 and which entered into force on November 4, 2016. Although the Paris Agreement represents a major step forward in efforts to address global climate change, much remains to be done to specify the rules and guidelines required to fully implement the Agreement, which primarily deals with action after 2020.

Participants, faculty, and students discuss steps forward under the Paris Agreement.

Harvard Project's Multi-Year Engagement with the IPCC

| January 26, 2016

The Harvard Project on Climate Agreements—and its Director, Robert Stavins—have completed a multi-year, multi-faceted engagement with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The IPCC, as the leading organization pursuing this mission, prepares its reports primarily for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its member governments.
