Decarbonizing Europe is Important and Challenging

Fri., Apr. 8, 2022 | 9:30am - 10:30am


Speaker: Dan Jørgensen, Danish Minister of Climate, Energy, and Utilities

Please note new time.

As a global leader in efforts to combat climate change, Denmark is aiming to phase out its oil and gas production and produce more than 100 percent of its electricity demand by renewables by 2027. Minister Jørgensen played a significant role in maintaining the focus on reducing the rise of global temperatures during COP26 in Glasgow, serving as co-leader on the consultations in the “ambition track.” In addition, he launched the Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (BOGA) during the COP. This discussion will focus on the Paris Agreement process, the road to COP27, and Danish and European efforts to decarbonize their economies.

Prospects for Article 6: COP-26 and Beyond

Mon., Nov. 1, 2021 | 9:00am - 10:15am


Article 6 of the Paris Agreement provides opportunities for national governments and the private sector to cooperate internationally to address climate change. In particular, it provides two modalities for international market-based mechanisms. At COP-26 in Glasgow in November, the Parties to the Paris Agreement will attempt (once again) to write the specific rules for implementing Article 6. Speakers in this event — all experts on Article 6 and market mechanisms more generally — will examine the potential of Article 6 — and its prospects at COP-26 and beyond.

One of the presentations will be based in large part on a recently completed discussion paper for the Harvard Project on Climate Agreements, which is available here.
