Philipp Pattberg gives lecture at the Netherlands Institute in Saint Petersburg on 28 October

October 23, 2015 in Conferences by Oscar Widerberg

Under the heading “20 Years of International Climate Change Politics: what has been achieved, what has gone wrong and what might happen next”, Dr Pattberg will critically discuss more than 20 years of international climate change diplomacy, from the successful negotiation of the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, its entering into force in 2005 after Russian ratification, the failure of the 2009 Copenhagen summit and recent attempts to reach an agreement on a new global climate treaty, to be negotiated in Paris in December this year. Dr Pattberg will reflect on major changes that have happened since 1992, including substantial changes to world order (the emergence of the BRICS countries, in particular the rise of China), the increasing popularity of new market-based instruments (such as emissions trading, the CDM and REDD+) and the unprecedented rise of non-state actors participating in climate change politics (from NGOS to global corporations, city networks and the Pope).
