In 2015, 195 countries pledged to reduce emissions under the Paris Agreement. The historic pact ushered in a new era of international collaboration on climate change. But for real progress on climate change to occur, countries must translate their promises into actions. What mechanisms and incentives are in place to hold countries to their pledges? What motivations and goals will keep key countries, like China, engaged? And, as cities and business leaders already feel the impacts of a changing climate, what role will they play in leading climate action?
Join EPIC, the Institute of Politics, and the University of Chicago Law School as they host a special off the record conversation with the former Special Envoy for Climate Change, Todd Stern.
