IES' LAUNCH PAPER FOR THE THINK TANK PLATFORM - What's in it for Europe?

 

"Paris Climate Agreement 2015 – EU needs to ensure ‘signal’ and ‘direction’”

 

Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change are expected to agree on a new international
climate agreement applicable to all countries from 2020 at the Paris climate summit in December 2015. This Policy Brief investigates the possible role of the European Union (EU) towards the 2015 Paris climate agreement. It argues for renewed efforts by the EU at coalition building with progressive developing countries, leadership by example and a more prominent, complementary role of individual EU member states. It also argues for a Paris agreement that provides a strong “signal” and “direction”, and discusses what this may entail.
