Side event: Beyond the financial crisis: Regional energy policy and global carbon constraints

Afin d’assurer sa visibilité internationale, la Chaire Modélisation prospective au service du développement durable a été accréditée, à travers ParisTech dont elle constitue la délégation officielle observatrice à l’ONU, pour participer à la Conférence des Nations Unies sur le Changement Climatique (UNFCCC-COP 15) à Copenhague en décembre 2009.

Une interview de Nadia MAÏZI a été réalisée par la journaliste Edie LUSH pour une diffusion via CNN’s iReport, HubCulture.com et YouTube.

La Chaire Modélisation prospective y a aussi organisé un side event, le seul français sélectionné dans l’enceinte internationale, sur le thème de « Beyond the financial crisis: Regional energy policy and global carbon constraints ».

Programme

This side event aims to bring novel insights about the most appropriate climate architecture to coordinate local and national policies and measures in order to lower GHGs emissions in a context of financial crisis. It will rely on iteration between:

  • the latest climate policy and technology scenarios carried out by the ParisTech Chair Modeling for Sustainable Development, scenarios reflecting the financial crisis impacts on mitigation objectives for the 2050 horizon, and latest national Copenhagen announcements on mitigation issues;
  • national and regional scenarios and policy insights given by leading experts from Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, the Middle East and the Mediterranean Basin, that consider the transition towards a low carbon intensive development pathways.

Based on their experience of national policies and of the international process (the Kyoto Protocol, Den Hagen, Marrakech, post-2012 negotiations, the EU energy and environmental package), the Panel Experts will discuss how the current financial crisis changes (in a positive or negative way) the basic pre-conditions to be fulfilled to reach a global agreement in a near future.
