Event description

Description

Long-term success of the 2015 Paris Agreement negotiations will depend on implementation of the agreement. Nationally determined contributions to the mitigation and adaptation challenge are currently not sufficiently ambitious to meet the common goals of keeping warming below 2C, or even 1.5C.

What next steps can and must the international community take? How can international climate protection move forward in these times of Trump? How specifically could a process of increasing ambition work? And how can complex issues, such as loss and damage, be addressed?

An expert panel representing the perspectives of Australia, the European Union and Small-Island States will discuss the challenges, areas of contention and likely outcomes of the upcoming COP23 in Bonn, Germany.

Panelists

Jacob Werksman is Principal Adviser to Directorate General for Climate Action in the European Commission. He focuses on the global dimensions of EU climate policy.

MJ Mace is a lawyer who has provided legal advice to the Alliance of Small Island Developing States in international climate change negotiations for over 10 years.

Patrick Suckling is the Ambassador for the Environment and a senior career officer with DFAT, most recently serving as Australia's High Commissioner in New Delhi.

Moderator

Emily Gerrard is co-head Climate Change, Allens Linklaters, and a specialist environmental lawyer.

This event is organised by the Australian-German Climate and Energy College; Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute; European Union Centre on Shared Complex Challenges; the Centre for Resources, Energy and Environmental Law; Institute for International Law and the Humanities
