What future for Global Climate Politics?

Wednesday 14 March 2012 17.00 - 18.30
Fulton A Lecture Theatre, University of Sussex.

Global climate politics are in stalemate. Targets and timetables for action fall woefully short of what the science suggests is required to keep global warming below dangerous levels.

Unprecedented levels of finance for climate mitigation and adaptation are required, but we face the worst financial crisis for half a century, so where will the money come from and how will it be distributed?

The role of carbon markets is in doubt amid low carbon prices and a series of corruption scandals. Political leadership is sorely lacking. So where do we go from here?

This is the question addressed by a distinguished panel of experts in climate change politics at this public debate.

The Panel

This event is sponsored by the Centre for Global Political Economy & the Sussex Climate Change Network. It will be followed by a drinks reception.
