Harvard Project Co-hosts Workshop on Options for a New International Climate Regime

| June 13, 2013

The Harvard Project on Climate Agreements and the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC) convened thirty leading international researchers and policymakers on May 23 and 24, 2013 at MCC in Berlin. satellitesOver these two days, participants identified and discussed options for a new international climate regime based on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action. The Platform, adopted by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in December 2011, provides an opportunity for all key greenhouse-gas-emitting countries to engage in a new international climate regime that could bring about meaningful emissions reductions within a feasible timetable and at acceptable costs. MCC and the Harvard Project are preparing a synthesis report intended to inform the UNFCCC's Ad Hoc Working Group on the Durban Platform for Enhanced Action as it attempts to forge a new agreement by December 2015.
